Research Themes

These are the current research priorities of the Guild Board.

Learning in 2030

What are the teaching and/or learning experiences that will enable success for the next 5, 10, or 20 years? How can we create meaningful change to produce desired outcomes of those experiences?

Unlocking Learner Potential

What are some ways that we can leverage learning science, psychology and/or neuroscience to better support learners to achieve better results? What are the ethical implications in leveraging such techniques?

Leveraging Learning Spaces

How will learning spaces support teaching and learning for the next decade or more? What role will emerging technologies play in those learning spaces? What role will physical/online environments play in those learning spaces?

Supporting Indigenous Ways of Knowing

How can we advance Indigenous ways of teaching, learning, knowing and being in education? How can we ensure meaningful engagement and connection with Indigenous communities to strengthen teaching and learning?

Ensuring Academic Integrity

With the ever-changing landscape of technology, means of access, and modalities of learning, what can be done to make sure that academic integrity stays at the core of teaching and learning? How can we evaluate and assess the impact of academic integrity?

Improving Mental Health and Well-being

How can we better support the mental health and well-being of faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars and/or staff? How does mental health and well-being impact and/or influence teaching and learning in education? How can the impacts of mental health on learners and educators be better understood?
