This post is part of the Meet the ETCL Team series, which introduces the wonderful people who work in the lab and who have worked with us in the past.

Hanh joined the lab in January 2022 as a Graduate Research Assistant. She is involved with a handful of team projects, including investigating the initial impacts of the Open Scholarship Policy Observatory and developing the foundations for the Canadian Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Commons. She will also play a part in setting up some of the conferences and events organized by the ETCL and partners. Digital humanities is a new field for Hanh, so she’s looking forward to being a part of the DH community and learning more about open scholarship.

Hanh has been working in education for more than 15 years. She is a Ph.D. candidate in the Faculty of Education, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, at UVic, and her focus major is in Language and Literacy. Hanh’s research investigates instructors’ beliefs and practices about formative assessment in a post-secondary English program. She is also an International Teaching Assistant Consultant at Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI) at UVic.

After graduation, Hanh hopes to find opportunities to apply her skills in literacy and education and broaden her experience in different disciplines. As a way of giving back to the communities that have supported her throughout her studies, she also hopes to work as a volunteer helping new immigrants and international students get acquainted with student life in Canada.

When she is not in the lab or doing her research, Hanh loves doing yoga and enjoying nature. These activities help her refresh her mind and recharge her battery after working hard, helping her maintain a good work-life balance. She also loves listening to pop music and cooking in her free time.
