Congratulations to Dr. Marc Spooner who has received a $49,600 SSHRC Connection Grant for his research entitled, “A ‘Crisis’ in Academia: Radio Documentaries Exploring the Changing Landscape of Higher Education.”

This project will involve a four-part documentary mini-series that explores: (1) how shifts towards market-based reforms are shaping research agendas in North America, (2) how new academic management practices are influencing teaching & learning, and  (3) how scholars and students are resisting these dynamics.

Congratulations to Dr. Christine Massing (Principal Investigator) who, in a partnership involving 8 institutions, has received a $36,379 SSHRC Connection Grant for their research entitled “Sketching narratives of movement towards comprehensive and competence early childhood educational systems across Canada.”

By bringing together a group of leading ECEC scholars/policy informants from across Canada with national and international decision-makers, researchers, and advocates, this project intends to capture the substantive changes that have already taken place, with regards to ECEC policy, pedagogy, practice, and theory, as the result of decades of collective advocacy and research, in order to inspire further action at local, provincial/territorial, and federal levels and to consolidate a pan-Canadian network of researchers, practitioners, decision-makers, advocates, and knowledge keepers from First Nations, Inuit, MĂ©tis, and immigrant communities.
