Dr Claire Alkouatli

Dr Claire Alkouatli's research and teaching focuses on creative constructions of learning communities in the interstitial spaces between schools and homes, minority and mainstream cultures. She examines the power of relationships and transformative pedagogies in enhancing cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual development in children and adults, reciprocally and together. Pedagogical interests include dialogue, engaged inquiry, play, and pedagogies considered uniquely Islamic. Methodological interests include post-qualitative, bricolage, ethnographic, narrative, and Islamic-interpretive and aim towards expansive data recognition at the edges of the possible, analytic coherence, and interpretive significance.
