UCL Connect Canada: Prof Ruth Hayhoe

UCL Institute of Education Honorary Fellow and alumna, Prof Ruth Hayhoe (PhD Comparative Education 1984, MA Comparative Education 1979) joined the UCL Toronto Alumni Group for an online networking event.

After growing up in Toronto, Ruth started her career as a teacher in Hong Kong, completed a PhD at UCL including two years’ teaching in Shanghai just after the end of the Cultural Revolution, and was then recruited to various roles in Beijing and Hong Kong. Ruth is currently a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto

Ruth said, “I think my love of Chinese language and culture was the thread that held everything together over the years, also an openness to opportunities that I had never imagined.”
