Many of our students are involved in research that is at the forefront of educational research. They are involved in large research projects, and full-time students often work as research assistants*.
As well, since the typical part-time M.Ed. student works as a full-time classroom teacher or administrator, their work experiences are often constructively linked to their emerging knowledge in educational research. Every spring, the Faculty of Education also hosts a Graduate Student Symposium, providing a synopsis of student research activities, and showcasing their work in an academic setting.
Educational research generates critical knowledge relative to teaching and learning in applied educational settings across a broad range of levels and experiences.
The University of Manitoba is a leader in research in a number of areas including:
Newly emerging areas of research include:
Sources of funding often include the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the University of Manitoba and numerous other private and public sources.
Joint Professional Field Work
Members of the Faculty of Education are involved in a variety of research and in-service projects with virtually every Winnipeg area school division and with many rural school divisions. The Faculty also works in partnership Manitoba Education, the Manitoba Teachers’ Society, school administrators, with various organizations related to education, and with teachers themselves. These collaborations help to create a vibrant research community within the faculty.
