Check in & on-site registration will be in the MacLaurin Building at the University of Victoria. Participants DO NOT need to go to Congress registration.
Join us for a day of vibrant and exciting discourse between university researchers and local educators focusing on research to practice and practice to research.
The overall goal of the Knowledge Mobilization Day is to create opportunities to collaboratively:
- Share current research with local educators
- Create scholarly connections between teachers, educators and researchers
- Stimulate dialogue connecting research and practice
- Have theory inform practice and practice inform theory
Sessions will run throughout the day in regularly scheduled time blocks with representation from a variety of association represented within the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE). The day will begin with an orientation session for those new to CSSE followed by four 75- to 90-minute sessions that will feature scholarly research conducted by teacher educators across Canada focusing on the question:
What does research mean for practice?
The day will close with a Wine and Cheese Gala featuring the professional inquiry projects conducted by local educators.
