She works with statistical and computational learning and data science in research projects with the industry. She is the founder of R-Ladies Salvador and the coordinator of the Gender Diversity Project in Data Science. Dr. Esquerre has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from UNICAMP, was a postdoctoral fellow in Socio-Environmental Engineering at the University of Hokkaido, Japan, and was a visiting Professor within the Department of Aerospace Mechanics at the University of California, San Diego. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and a researcher in the Industrial Engineering Program and Master in Environment, Water, and Sanitation graduate programs at UFBA.
– Alejandra Brito and Alejandra Luna (México) will talk about “MUxED: A Mexican women network in favor of education”. Alejandra Luna is a PhD candidate in Education at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico, City. Her research interests include access to education, the analysis of educational public policy related to practice, and autonomy in school management. Alejandra Brito is an educational consultant who designs solutions for school management and public policy to improve education. She has been part of several projects at UNESCO, UNICEF, the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), and the Mexican Ministry of Education.

CLAREC member Paula Teixeira de Castro will present at the Hughes Hall event “Dialogue in different cultural contexts” on Thursday, January 28 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Dialogic education – education for dialogue as well as through dialogue – takes many different forms in different cultural contexts. Led by senior members Rupert Wegerif and Sara Hennessy, this event will explore how dialogic education works in three quite distinct contexts: Islamic education the Freirean tradition of education for liberation, and teacher development through shared reflective inquiry. The three perspectives will be provided by: Farah Ahmed (Islamic tradition) Paula Teixeira de Castro (Freirian tradition) Sara Hennessy (Teacher inquiry tradition). Short presentations will be followed by Q&A. All welcome, including non college members. To know more and register your interest, click here.
Symposium: “Social Interactions in Inclusive Educational Settings“
CLAREC researcher Ana Rubio-Jimenez will present an online workshop on the analysis of educational dialogue in the Symposium: “Social Interactions in Inclusive Educational Settings”. The event is organised by Tampere University, Finland and INSHEA, France. Dates: 28 and 29 January. All the sessions are open to students and professionals in the education field free of charge! To know more and register your interest, please visit the event website.
For her methods session, Ana will introduce a theory-informed coding framework for systematically analysing educational dialogue across a wide range of educational settings (including classrooms of course). The coding framework is titled: “the Cam-UNAM Scheme for Educational Dialogue Analysis” (commonly referred to as SEDA). SEDA has been published (Hennessy et al., 2016) and used in different research projects (e.g. Huang, Yang, & Li, 2019; Rojas-Drummond et al., 2016). She will also explain how she adapted SEDA to analyse the active participation of young adults with intellectual disability in a goal-setting activity. Finally, she will share transcripts of data collected during her PhD for attendees to try out coding with SEDA.
After a successful launch event, the Cambridge Latin American Research in Education Collective (CLAREC) will be having its second virtual meeting on Monday, December 7th from 2:00-3:00pm. This session’s student presentation is titled, “Teacher Craft Knowledge in the Dominican Republic: A building-on-strengths approach to improving teaching and learning in the Hispanophone Caribbean,” by Dr Sophia D’Angelo, who recently completed her PhD at the Faculty of Education. The presentation will follow with an opportunity for questions and answers, before CLAREC members offer a more informal presentation on the history of the Collective and the personal importance it has for its student members.
CLAREC researcher, Javiera Marfan, will be presenting about contemporary approaches to educational policy implementation, at Churchill college’s postgraduates Chu-talks. If you want to know more about these theories and how they have influenced Javiera’s doctoral research, we invite you to participate in the presentation. The event will be on Thursday 26 November, by zoom. Details below.
We are very proud to tell you that CLAREC researcher, Julia Hayes, will be presenting her work “Using visual illustration in disability research” in the CaNDER conference. Details below.

Would you want to know more about our ongoing research projects? CLAREC researcher Sebastián Ansaldo will be presenting “The mediatization of education: an introduction, approaches and key aspects” at Churchill College’s Chutalks. This virtual talk will be on Thursday 5 November (19.00 UK time). In this talk, he presents the mediatization approach, which tries to make sense of media and technology impact in a comprehensive and multidisciplinary way. He uses the educational field as an example, also analysing some elements from the current pandemic scenario.
