This year's keynote address will be given by Dr. Marie McAndrew, Emeritus Professor in the Département d’administration et fondements de l’éducation de la Faculté des sciences de l’éducation at the Université de Montréal, and Director of the Groupe de recherche Immigration, équité et scolarisation (GRIÉS). Her presentation, Taking into account diversities in educational research: which practices hould we emphasize?, will take place on Thursday, March 4th at 1:00 PM.
Jean-Paul Dionne was a professor at the University of Ottawa from 1970 until his retirement in 1996. He won the University's Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1995. Professor Dionne was especially valued for the exceptional support he offered graduate students, his intellectual rigour, and his expertise in statistics. As he was its founder, this annual scholarly event bears his name. The symposium serves as a tribute to the memory of Professor Dionne, acknowledging his exceptional contributions to Faculty of Education students.
