DISRUPTIVE APPROACHES TO EDUCATION – PREPARING OUR NORTHERN WORKFORCE

Dr. Fiona Schmiegelow has been a professor at the University of Alberta for over 21 years, the last 14 for which she has been resident in the Yukon.  Since 2009, she has directed a partnered Bachelor of Science program with Yukon College; the only one of its kind offered North of 60 in Canada.  Non-traditional students and approaches have been an important focus for programming.  In addition to her educational responsibilities, Dr. Schmiegelow has chaired numerous regional, national and international science committees, involving government, industry and other non-government organizations in finding innovative solutions to resource management challenges.  She continues to view opportunities in the north as bounded only by our imaginations.
