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.

Philosophical underpinnings of this research are:
(1) There is value in learning of all kinds; (2) Learning is a lifelong endeavour; and (3) An interdisciplinary approach is valuable.
