April 20, 2016. Two Dr. Tamtik’s undergraduate students - Donovan Alexander and Courtney Van De Kerckhove - were awarded prestigious Undergraduate Research Awards (URA) by Digvir S. Jayas, Vice-President Research and International, University of Manitoba. The goal of the URA is to provide undergraduate students a first-hand research experience over 16-week period in the summer.
Both students are already working on two of Dr. Tamtik’s new research projects. Donovan is examining internationalization initiatives in Manitoba high schools for a project titled ‘Internationalization of Canadian Education System’. Courtney is working on a project that examines the role of indigenous knowledge in Canada’s Innovation Agenda.
