Programs

1) Knowledge Translation Internship

One of our goals at Teaching and Learning Research (TLR) In Action is to translate scholarly research related to teaching and learning into easily accessible formats for students, instructors, and the community. Through our knowledge translation internship, we work with undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in gaining knowledge translation experience related to educational contexts. This internship is an opportunity to be creative and to generate usable resources that will be shared with instructors, students, and the community.

This summer we are working with our first cohort of interns, composed of 17 bright individuals from across Canada. Some of the topics they are working on include online learning, learning principles, and disability. Please stay tuned to see what they come up with!

We currently are not accepting applications for this program. Please check back here in the winter for application information for the 2023 offering of this internship.

 

Class attendance vs. participation: How do they impact learning?​

2) Seminar Series

The goal of the TLR Seminar Series is to form a community of practitioners focused on sharing evidence-based teaching practices and putting these practices into action. At the start of each session, a member from our team will summarize a research paper that is relevant to teaching and learning. Throughout the rest of the session, attendees will discuss the potential implications of this research on their own teaching and teaching in general. Although these seminars are directed towards educators who teach in various contexts (e.g., K-12, higher education), these seminars are open to everyone.

In conjunction with these seminars, TLR In Action is providing a certificate to help attendees document their professional development. By joining our community of practice, attendees will receive a TLR Seminar Series certificate after they have attended six seminars.
