Exploring Faculty Research and Teaching in New Ways

We’ve been experimenting with different ways of communicating the work faculty members do in the Faculty of Education. In these dynamic visualisations, we use networks to show how faculty members’ teaching, researching, and supervision connect and intersect. As a faculty member, you can use these at-a-glance visualisations to learn about colleagues' projects and discover what new colleagues are researching. As a student, you may discover new interdisciplinary learning opportunities: for example, you might notice a faculty member teaching in two or more program areas. These interconnected visualisations show how our research network grows and changes over time.

RESEARCH IN FOCUS

As for the field of cognitive psychology, I believe that having a foundational understanding of attention, perception, thinking, language, and memory, is important for teachers supporting all kinds of learners. 

Dr. Elina Birmingham

Performative inquiry along with embodied inquiry, poetic inquiry, a/r/tography, among other ways of being in inquiry through the arts, offer educational researchers a new paradigm of research in addition to quantitative or qualitative research.

Dr. Lynn Fels

The fundamental value of philosophy is that it allows us to see through absurd ideas such as that critical thinking is a generic skill that can be developed by exercise on any material and then exhibited in all walks of life. 

Dr. Robin Barrow
