Office of Research

Our work

The work of the Werklund School of Education is learning. Research is an engaging way of learning what is not already yet known, or probing what is already known but in new ways. Within the Werklund School of Education, the research conducted by our professors and students is incredibly diverse.

Our efforts are shaping the future of learning in such areas as:

  • online literacies
  • learning additional languages
  • challenging social injustices
  • addressing environmental concerns
  • enhancing educational technology
  • overcoming learning disorders
  • cross-cultural practices
  • family therapy
  • youth empowerment
  • innovating classroom learning

We are an agile faculty, responding to emerging educational needs, and our research enhances learning of all kinds. We seek collaborations with researchers from other disciplines, and with members of interested learning communities who share our aims of optimizing learning wherever possible.
