Informal Seminars - Soupers

In the spirit of collaboration, support, and nurturing a vibrant research community, our faculty and graduate students meet regularly over lunch to share and discuss:

• current research projects
• innovative teaching practices within the Faculty of Education

At these events, a guest presenter, faculty member, or graduate student volunteers to lead a session that highlights some area of research or teaching. These sessions are open and informal and designed to stimulate discussion, inquiry, and collegiality.
