Dear colleagues, students, partners and stakeholders,

I am pleased to welcome you to our research website, where you will find information about the diverse research activities conducted at the Faculty of Education. We conduct high-quality, externally funded educational research that is rooted in the communities that we serve.

Our researchers and graduate students work with local, provincial, national and international collaborators through formal structures such as our Canada Research Chairs, University Research Chairs, Educational Research Units and the Centre for Research on Educational and Community Services (CRECS), which is shared with the Faculty of Social Sciences, as well as through other types of research collaborations and partnerships. Our research projects cover a wide range of educational topics, such as mathematics, educational leadership, adult learning and higher education, history, educational partnerships, evaluation, technology use in education, and second language learning.

Our Faculty also supports outreach through the Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium, a joint venture of the Education Graduate Student Association and my office. This early-spring event provides a wonderful opportunity for emerging researchers to gain valuable experience in presenting their research work and to learn from the experiences of others. We also host the Education Review, a research-focused, thematic publication to which our researchers and students contribute regularly.

I encourage you to visit our website to learn about all of these initiatives and more.
