A Cross-Faculty Symposium on Science Teaching and Learning
There are many professors and graduate students in the Faculties of Science and Education whose research focus is on the scholarship of teaching and learning science. However, due to the busy nature of university life, there are rarely any opportunities for these like-minded individuals to share their interest for science education within or between our faculties. Therefore, the present symposium is being organized to promote the exchange of ideas and create opportunities for collaboration amongst participants.
The cross-Faculty symposium will be a venue allowing for communication and collaboration between our two Faculties, in order to share and discuss our theoretical and practical approaches to science education at uOttawa. The reasons for such meaningful exchange between participants would be threefold, to: (i) lead to greater knowledge mobility across our related fields – i.e. science and education; (ii) improve the learning experiences of our undergraduate and graduate students; (iii) foster joint research projects between members of our faculties.
