Short Biographical Note
Daniel Schugurensky was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he attended the Escuela Urquiza in Flores and the Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires. After finishing high school, he travelled and worked for a year in several countries. Upon his return to Argentina, he began studies at the Escuela Normal Superior Estanislao Zeballos (to become a teacher) and at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (to become an educational researcher), while working part-time. He interrupted those activities in 1978, when he moved to Mexico, where he would live for a decade. During the first two years in Mexico, he worked producing audiovisual materials for elementary and secondary school, and completed a two-year diploma in educational communication and media production at the Instituto Latinoamericano de la Comunicacion Educativa (ILCE-UNESCO). He subsequently completed a bachelor's degree in education at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). His bachelor's thesis, supervised by Patricia Ducoing and entitled Educación Básica para Adultos: Análisis de su Situación Actual y Apuntes para su Redefinición, analyzed the mismatch between policy formulation and curriculum implementation in adult education, discussed the factors propelling and inhibiting reform, and proposed a model for a diversified curriculum in adult basic education, with Mexico as a case study.
In Mexico, Schugurensky had the opportunity of working on a variety of educational projects for governmental, non-governmental and international organizations. Among those institutions are the Centro de Estudios Educativos (an educational research center founded by Pablo Latapi, where he had the fortune to learn from talented scholars such as Sylvia Schmelkes and Carlos Muñoz Izquierdo) and CREFAL (Centro Regional para la Educacion Fundamental y la Alfabetizacion en America Latina), a Latin American and Caribbean center for adult education based in Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, that was founded in the early 1950s after the Fourth Unesco Conference. Among other things, he was involved in a project to on alternative education models in small and isolated rural communities, and co-directed a research project to reformulate the curriculum of adult basic education in Mexico (see article in Revista de Educación de Adultos 1, 1985). He also co-authored the book Nezahualpilli: Educación preescolar comunitaria (Centro de Estudios Educativos, 1986), co-edited the book Educación básica para adultos: experiencias y prospectiva en México (CREFAL, 1987), and authored two textbooks on community development: El Problema del Desarrollo (Apuntes del Promotor 1) and Introducción al mundo de la promoción social (Apuntes del Promotor 2), both published in 1987. During that period, Schugurensky also undertook research and teaching in other Latin American countries, including Nicaragua, El Salvador, Argentina and Brazil.
In 1987, Schugurensky moved to Canada, where he pursued a master's degree at the University of Alberta and participated in a comparative study of adult education public policies in Canada, Mexico and Tanzania. His master's thesis, supervised by Carlos A. Torres, was entitled State ideology, public policy and adult education in Canada and Mexico, and included interviews with policy-makers, educators and learners. Immediately after defending the master's thesis, he continued into the Ph.D. Program. His doctoral dissertation, supervised by Raj Pannu, was entitled Global economic restructuring and university change: The case of Universidad de Buenos Aires. The study, based on over 60 in-depth interviews with a variety of university actors (all professors, students and alumni representatives to the University Council, as well as government policy-makers, business leaders, student leaders and university authorities), argued that public universities were experiencing a transition towards a heteronomous model.
In 1995 he moved to Los Angeles, California to work at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), where he held a joint appointment as visiting professor at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, and as research associate at the Latin American Center. At UCLA, Schugurensky was involved in a comparative research on the relationships between teachers' unions and the state in six countries.
In 1998 he joined the University of Toronto, where he was associate professor in the Adult Education and Community Development program (located in the Department of Adult Education and Counselling Psychology, at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education) and associate director of the Centre for Urban and Community Studies. He is now a Professor at Arizona State University (joint appointment in the School of Public Affairs and the School of Social Transformation) and lives in Tempe (AZ) with his wife Laurie. They have two children who live in California. He enjoys practicing sports (especially football, known in North America as 'soccer'), gardening, volunteering in a variety of community groups and public agencies.
Professor Schugurensky serves or has served on the executive board of several academic associations, including the Canadian Association for Studies in Adult Education (CASAE), the Red de Investigadores sobre Educacion Superior (RISEU), the Citizenship Education Research Network (CERN), and the International Society of Comparative Adult Education (ISCAE).

Building expertise among Ontario literacy practitioners through literacy research circles
This project aimed at enhancing the research capacity of adult literacy practitioners and learners in Ontario through a collaborative approach between practitioner-based research and academic-based research.
The citizenship education of citizenship educators
This project explored the ways in which civic educators acquire their perspectives, knowledge, skills and attitudes about civics and democracy, and about the teaching of civics and democracy throughout their lives. By looking at different educational experiences - such as primary socialization, secondary schooling, pre-service and in-service teacher training, community involvement, adult education courses or political engagement - this study examined the relationships (often complementary, sometimes contradictory) between formal, nonformal and informal learning of civics and democracy, and their influence on curriculum implementation.
Lifelong citizenship learning, political participation and immigration: The case of Latin Americans in Toronto and Montreal
This project, which explored the civic engagement, political learning and social capital of Latin American immigrants in Toronto and Montreal, was undertaken in collaboration with Dr. Victor Armony (l'Université du Québec à Montréal). The first book on this project, Ruptures, continuities and re-learning: The political participation of Latin Americans in Canada, was published in 2006 and re-printed in 2007.
The informal learning of volunteer workers
This study, which was part of the INE-SSHRC Collaborative Grant "The Changing Nature of Work and Lifelong Learning in the New Economy," focused on the informal learning of volunteer workers. It was conducted in partnership with four community organizations: A Commitment to Training and Employment for Women (ACTEW), the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada (CHF), the Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition (OHCC), and the Canadian Red Cross (CRC).
The representation of the social economy in high school textbooks
This project examined business education textbooks that were used in Ontario high schools in 2005 to analyze how the social economy (especially non-profit organizations and co-operatives) was portrayed in those books. An additional area of analysis was to what extent innovative reforms in the private sector (such as worker participation and profit sharing) and the role of unions were discussed in the textbooks. This project was a follow-up to a similar study conducted by Quarter et al. in 1995, and provided basis for comparing changes (or lack of thereof) in a 10-year span. The project includes a quantitative assessment of coverage as well as a qualitative one.
Citizenship learning through participatory democracy
This international project, conducted with a team of graduate students, dealt with the connections between citizenship learning, participatory democracy and local governance. The first cases analyzed in this project are the participatory budget of Porto Alegre (Brazil), the Seniors' Task Force of Toronto (Canada), the neighbourhood councils of Montevideo (Uruguay), the neighbourhood assemblies of Rosario, Argentina, the Tenant Participatory System of the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (Toronto) and the participatory budget of Guelph, in Ontario, Canada. This project explored, among other things, the relations between different types of learning (formal, non-formal, and informal) about democracy, the changes in knowledge, skills and values that result from participation in processes of deliberation and decision-making, the potential of participatory democracy for the redistribution of political capital, and the links between civic engagement and public policy.
Four in Ten: Spanish-speaking youth and school dropout in Toronto
This project was undertaken in response to two studies from the Toronto District School Board that found that Spanish-speaking students have one of the lowest levels of academic achievement in elementary school and one of the highest dropout rates (40%) in high school. The project sought a better understanding of the reasons behind this situation and the development of strategies to address it. To gain a more comprehensive perspective on this issue, the project made an open call to the community to discuss this topic, guided by two main questions: a) Why do 40% of Latino/a youth not complete high school in Toronto public schools?, and b) What can be done about it? The project generated public forums, newspaper articles, and perspectives from different groups (students, teachers, parents, researchers, community leaders, etc.). These perspectives are reflected in a book entitled Four in Ten: Spanish-Speaking Youth and Early School Leaving in Toronto (available in English and Spanish) that includes 36 short articles on causes and possible solutions.
Building Inclusive Communities from Within. A Case Study of Toronto’s West-Central Neighborhoods
This project, coordinated by the Centre for Urban and Community Studies (University of Toronto) and St. Christopher's House, was guided by three main research questions: 1) Can we preserve existing lower-income and socially and ethnically mixed, affordable neighborhoods in the face of forces that are raising costs (particularly housing costs) and displacing or excluding certain people, businesses, and community services? 2) How can people in urban neighborhoods successfully shape the development of their environment to create a community that is socially cohesive and inclusive? and 3) What can we learn from recent and emerging community practice about effective action against negative forces and support for positive forces to ensure better outcomes? This project was part of a SSHRC initiative called CURA (Community-University Research Alliances).
Educational Reforms in Ontario: Views from the Ground
This study explored changes in the last 25 years in Ontario's public education system, and examined the causes and consequences of these changes in a global context. The study, which included focus groups and interviews with educators and administrators in K-12, adult education and higher education, was a component of a comparative and international project that includes 16 countries and is coordinated by the Paulo Freire Institute of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).
'Four in Ten' Part II: The educational experience of U-30 Spanish-speaking youth
This study was the second stage of a larger project that explored the educational experience of Spanish-speaking youth in Toronto. The first phase of this project provided a better understanding of the different factors that lead the 40% dropout rate of Spanish-speaking youth in Toronto high schools, and increased our knowledge about current and upcoming interventions that address this issue. This second phase explores the challenges faced by Spanish-speaking youth (20-29 years old) who have not completed high school, and will recommend strategies to improve the educational, economic, social and political integration of this population group.
Rochdale V: The educational dimension of the co-operative movement
The co-operative movement is guided by the seven Rochdale principles. According to the fifth Rochdale principle, co-operative education is twofold. On the one hand, co-operatives are expected to provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. On the other hand, they are expected to inform the general public - particularly young people and opinion leaders - about the nature and benefits of co-operation. This study explored the accomplishments and challenges of co-operative education in pursuing these two goals.
New social economy initiatives in Latin America: The educational dimension of economies of solidarity
This project aimed at exploring the educational dimension of the social economy in Latin America, and extracting lessons that may be useful to other parts of the world. It examined four settings: a) ‘new co-operatives” (recovered enterprises), b) “pan-communities” (federations of communal councils), c) social property enterprises, and d) universities. In the context of this project, the educational dimension of the social economy includes four aspects. First, formal educational programs about the social economy, with a particular focus on post-secondary programs. Second, capacity building programs (self-organized or carried out by external agencies) whose purpose is to improve the quality of the of social economy organizations in achieving their goals. Third, the informal learning acquired by members of social economy organizations. Fourth, horizontal learning across co-operatives and other social economy organizations.
Managing Hybrid Challenge Platforms to Promote Innovation
This project examines a variety of hybrid platforms used in participatory governance processes and in collaborative communities for innovation.
Building successful and sustainable student clubs: The case of Oxfam.
This project explores issues of recruitment, retention and vibrancy of student clubs (with a particular focus on Oxfam), considering organic and change leader-led clubs, and the role of faculty advisors.
Interchangeability between Volunteer and Paid Labour
This project explores the relationship of volunteers to the paid workforce and to what extent they are interchanged with paid labour.
Business Done Differently
This project seeks a) to understand the impact of social businesses in addressing the needs, both social and economic, of marginalized persons, and b) to add to existing knowledge on leadership, management, governance, marketing and finance of social business. This step will include the development of education and policies that relate to the capacity issues addressed in the research.
