Join Dr. Christine Schreyer, acting ICER Director as she speaks with Dr. Leyton Schnellert as the inaugural Community Engaged Research (CER) storyteller.

Starting in the fall of 2023, each semester, the director of the Institute for Community Engaged Research will invite a colleague to share how they first became involved in Community Engaged Research (CER), what were the behind the scenes motivations, the challenges, and their key learnings along the way.


Dr. Leyton Schnellert is an Associate Professor in UBC’s Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy and Eleanor Rix Professor of Rural Teacher Education. His scholarship attends to how teachers and teaching and learners and learning can mindfully embrace student diversity and inclusive education. Dr. Schnellert is the Pedagogy and Participation research cluster lead in UBC’s Institute for Community Engaged Research (ICER) and co-chair of BC’s Rural Education Advisory. His community-based collaborative work contributes a counterargument to top-down approaches that operate from deficit models, instead drawing from communities’ funds of knowledge to build participatory, place-conscious, and culturally sustaining practices. Dr. Schnellert has been a middle and secondary school classroom teacher and a learning resource teacher for K-12. His books, films, and research articles are widely referenced in local, national, and international contexts.


We have the capacity for 25 people to join us in Arts 368 and will have refreshments on hand. For those unable to join in person, we will share a Zoom link.

Please email: icer.ok@ubc.ca and indicate if you’re joining in person, and have any food allergies, or if you’re joining via Zoom.
