Rebecca MacAlpine

As the CTE Faculty Liaison for the Faculty of Arts and Affiliated and Federated Institutions of Waterloo (AFIW), Rebecca MacAlpine supports instructors with teaching and learning and the effective integration of technology in their courses. She also serves as a guide for instructors to access other CTE resources.

Rebecca is an Ontario Certified Teacher (OCT) and earned her PhD in History at the University of Waterloo. Her dissertation entitled “In Protection of No Woman: Consent, Illegitimacy, and Gender-Based Violence in Early Modern Somerset, 1600-1699,” focused on the institutionalization of gender-based violence in early modern (seventeenth century) Somerset (England). Rebecca has taught a course on women and gender in early modern Europe, as well as co-taught a course on violence against women in early modern Europe. 

Prior to returning to the University of Waterloo, Rebecca completed the Master of Teaching Program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) with a specialization in junior/intermediate history education. While completing the Fundamentals of University Teaching and Certificate in University Teaching (CUT) programs, she further developed her interest in feminist and trauma-informed pedagogies in post-secondary education.
