Research information:

Dr. Rukhsana Ahmed’s research embraces the cross/trans/inter-disciplinary nature of communication scholarship, with specific focus on exploring the role of communication processes in improving health outcomes among marginalized communities and promoting broader social changes in international health contexts. She is particularly interested in the ways in which systems of beliefs, values, actions, and symbols are shared, or not, by people and how social groups influence communication in health care interactions. She is also interested in the ways in which people’s cultural selves become entwined with race, ethnicity, gender, and social class groups and shape their perceptions of health, illness, and health care. Although her research is deeply rooted in health communication, Dr. Ahmed is also actively involved in interdisciplinary and multisectoral projects and partnerships in other realms of communication, including immigrant integration, multicultural media, and religious diversity.

Research information:

Alison Flynn is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of Ottawa. Her research lies in two main areas related to education: learning in chemistry/science and how students develop their learning skills in any discipline (mindsets, metacognition, goal-setting, resilience, self-regulated learning, and mindfulness). Her work includes developing open-access online learning tools and flipped and blended course structures to support student learning, especially in large classes. Her research group studies student learning in organic chemistry (FlynnResearchGroup.com). As uOttawa’s 2016 Chair in University Teaching, she developed and evaluated the Growth & Goals module. This module can be integrated in courses in any discipline and level, or stand alone. Her group studies the impact for this module for students. She was recently accepted into the 3M National Teaching Fellowship, Canada’s highest recognition for excellence in education at the post-secondary level. At the provincial level, she is a Director on eCampusOntario’s Board; this organization brings together all the provinces universities and colleges to foster technology-enabled innovation, research, and excellence on behalf of students. At the National level, she is helping to build Canada’s strength in Chemistry Education Research (ChemEdCanada.com), and is the Canadian Society for Chemistry’s Director of Accreditation. Internationally, she is part of an IUPAC-funded international team that is exploring learning outcomes focused on systems thinking in chemistry. She is also a member of the Global Young Academy and co-leads the GYA’s Science Advice Working Group. In all her work, she is committed to helping students succeed in their chosen careers and goals.
