Bruce Lumsden served as the Director of the Co-operative Education and Career Services department (CECS; now Co-operative Education and Career Action) at the University of Waterloo for eleven years. He believes that in order to understand the learning process in the classroom and the workplace, and to connect the two into a comprehensive learning experience requires relevant and substantive research. As the former director of CECS, he oversaw the growth of co-op student enrolment and the construction of the Tatham Centre, a building dedicated solely to the CECS activity. Currently (and in continuing discussion with Dr. Patricia Rowe), he is particularly interested in the quality of co-op programs and how to manage the expectations of the various partners, employers, students, and institutions in the co-op program.
