What We Do
It is universally accepted that education and learning are the keys to addressing the biggest challenges we face as a society, and are at the root of a prosperous, healthy and equitable future. Through international leadership in teacher education, continuing and professional learning, graduate studies in education, research in education, and an intensely practical understanding of the mechanisms by which people learn, OISE opens doors for individuals, communities and for society.
An intellectually rich and supportive community, guided by the highest standards of scholarship and a commitment to equity and social justice, we examine major issues in education, human development and professional practice considering: what they are now and what they might be. We answer the critical questions that are translated into actions and brought to life by the thousands of teachers, researchers, professionals, policy makers, leaders and influencers who are part of our community world-wide. To that end, we:
- Generate new knowledge through research
- Prepare academic and professional leaders in education, applied psychology, leadership and community development
- Provide ongoing professional learning opportunities
- Contribute to public debate and policy
- Improve teaching and learning in different contexts
- Work with communities and partner organizations in support of their goals
- Consult and conduct commissioned research consistent with our mission and vision
