Pat O'Riley

Dr. Pat O’Riley is an Honorary Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy at the University of British Columbia. Her teaching and research have focused on the convergences of technologies (digital, non-digital, ecotechnologies), social justice, and ecological justice in local and global contexts. Her current research is with the Kichwa-Lamista in the High Amazon of Peru to support them in their efforts to have their voices and traditional ecological knowings valued and heard as counter-narratives to the predominant “progress” narratives offered in mainstream education. Pat is the past Co-Chair of the Environmental Education Caucus, Co-Advisor of the MEd in Ecojustice & Sustainability Education, and Co-Director of the Peru Global Seminar, Ecology, Technology & Indigeneity in the High Amazon.
