Teaching and Learning Research (TLR) In Action is a not-for-profit corporation that investigates and publicizes effective teaching and learning practices. In addition to researching effective pedagogical practices, we focus on making the results of this research more accessible to the public.

Who we are

Mission

With a multitude of teaching methods and techniques to choose from, identifying the one that would be most effective and feasible in a particular learning environment (e.g., face-to-face, blended, fully online) is difficult. Educators (e.g., instructors, facilitators, and trainers) don’t always have the time and resources to empirically examine which teaching practices would be most effective in their teaching context. On the flip side, students don’t always know what study methods are most effective. This is where we come in to help unpack the results of relevant research and make them more accessible.

Team

We come with diverse interests and areas of expertise, including philosophy, psychology, education, media and production. Collectively, our interests span cognitive learning strategies, e-learning, decolonizing the curriculum, student partnerships/co-creation of teaching and learning, student engagement, transformative learning, and experiential education. What brings us all together is our mission – investigating the efficacy of teaching practices and making our findings public, particularly through non-traditional forms of dissemination.
