Advancing Education Through Research
As one of North America’s largest, most research-intensive faculties of education, OISE represents an enormous pool of expertise. We cultivate leading education experts in expansive areas of interests and empower them to improve learning in real-world situations.
Dynamics of Diversity
Our faculty, students, researchers and staff bring together many perspectives on today’s challenges and opportunities in the field of education. Faculty and student profiles offer a glimpse into some of the most recent developments and discoveries.
Our research centres and institutes are multi-disciplinary spaces where researchers collaborate around a unified substantive field or problem area. OISE’s Research Chairs represent core areas of interest aligned with national and provincial research priority areas. These research strands are interrelated through overarching themes, emanating from real-life issues, such as:
• the interplay between theory and practice
• social, cultural and linguistic diversity
• learning along the lifespan
• technology-mediated interaction
• policy and democracy
We build on our diversity through large-scale national and international research initiatives and a commitment to equity and inclusiveness. OISE scholars can contribute to a vast range of research projects while forging their own unique educational profiles.
Transforming Knowledge into Action
Knowledge mobilization builds stronger connections between research, policy and practice. Traditionally, findings were shared through the individual efforts of faculty members or research units. OISE is now at the forefront of developing better processes for sharing our education research and putting it into practice in organizations around the world.
