Research at the Laboratory School
Research Activities at the Laboratory School
As a Laboratory School, the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study (JICS) has a threefold mandate: exemplary education for the 200 children who attend the school, teacher education, and research.
JICS Laboratory School provides an environment that fosters research and professional inquiry and is involved in initiating and disseminating new ideas related to improving education. The JICS Laboratory School makes a significant contribution to the education, human development, and applied psychology work within our university, wider educational community in Canada, and internationally.
With this focus in mind, research projects approved by the JICS Child Research Committee to be carried out in the JICS Laboratory School are ones that address issues pertaining to education of your children (ages 3-12) and their development within educational settings. The unique nature of the laboratory school tends to be a significant factor for researchers when choosing the JICS Laboratory School as a potential setting for their research.
The JICS Laboratory School research projects are sorted by current, past, and completed projects. JICS conducts an average of 15 studies per year in the JICS Laboratory School. Protocols and additional information are available on the Information for Researchers webpage.
New information about current studies coming soon.
