Ontario is well represented at this year’s Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) conference which will be held May 28 to June 1 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Researchers from across Canada will use this opportunity to present their work and explore the range of current research topics in Education.
This year’s program for the CSSE conference (current as of April 6, 2011) includes 369 presentations, panels and posters that feature Ontario research. University research accounts for the majority of the presentations (362) but there is also representation from the Ontario Ministry of Education (3), Ontario School Boards (3) and the Ontario Education Research Panel (1).
Of all the Ontario Universities represented at CSSE this year, the Ontario Institute for Studies of Education will deliver the greatest number of presentations (82), followed by Queen’s (45), York (40), the UWO (35) and Ottawa (34).
Just like the AERA meeting held earlier this year, the CSSE conference categorizes each of the presentations. Where AERA organized presentations by topics, the CSSE has organized presentations by Associations. This year, the top five Associations represented by Ontario research are the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies (CACS = 88), Canadian Committee of Graduate Students in Education (CCGSE= 58), the Canadian Association for Teacher Education (CATE = 54), the Canadian Association of Foundations of Education (CAFE =42) and the Canadian Educational Researchers Association (CERA =30). If you would like to explore the Ontario research in more detail, a spreadsheet containing records for each of the presentations is available here.
Although I will not be able to attend this year’s conference, I look forward to following the discussions and sharing in the resources and presentations that cause a stir with conference participants. If you would like to follow the 2011 CSSE conference as well, join in on Twitter with the hashtag
