Our experts in education support the theoretical foundations of policy and practice but we are proud to add that our research does not gather dust on the shelf. The reward comes in knowing that our work can have an immediate and positive effect on what teachers teach and how teachers teach, around the corner and across the world.
Our faculty members, instructors, and graduate students partner with school boards and community organizations. They collaborate with researchers across campus and beyond boundaries. Everything we do is focused on benefitting the broad educational community and advancing education for all. For details on our faculty members' areas of research please visit our Faculty profiles site.
Our researchers focus on many areas of education research: curriculum studies, social justice, gender studies, Aboriginal education, educational and behavioral psychology and we are very proud of our unique and important research centres. The Centre for Inclusive Education focuses on the theory and practice of improving the unique world inhabited by students with exceptionalities. At the Centre for Research & Education on Violence Against Women and Children, researchers, practitioners and community advocates work to develop community-focused research and practices directed toward changing the lives of the most vulnerable in our society through the prevention of violence and abuse. Real change for real people.
