This weekend, education researchers from across Canada will be traveling to Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo to participate in the Canadian Society for the Study of Education’s (CSSE) Annual Congress. As is traditionally the case, Ontario is well represented by research from Universities, Colleges, School Boards, the Ministry of Education and a variety of Education networks and organizations. Of all the presentations featured in the 2012 program, 22 sessions will be delivered by Ontario School Board and Ontario Ministry of Education researchers. Twelve sessions will feature the work of the following school boards:
- Dufferin Peel CDSB,
- Durham DSB,
- Grand Erie DSB,
- Halton CDSB,
- London District Catholic School Board,
- London Region School Boards,
- Ottawa Carleton DSB,
- Peel DSB,
- Renfrew County District Catholic School Board,
- Toronto CDSB,
- Waterloo Region DSB,
- York CDSB
Eleven sessions will feature the work of Researchers from the Ontario Ministry of Education. For a complete list of the presentation titles, presenters and organizational affiliations click here.
The majority of the presentations will be hosted by the Canadian Association for the Study of Educational Administration (8 sessions) and the Canadian Educational Researchers’ Association (6 sessions).
If you are unable to attend, you can follow the twitter hashtag #CSSE12 which will hopefully have a lot of activity given the free wifi that Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo will be providing. For those attending the conference, wifi can be accessed through the network congress2012, using the password bigthinker (from the CSSE program page 16)
