CTE provides support to students, faculty, and staff who are interested or engaged in conducting research on teaching and learning. CTE staff are available to help you throughout the research process, from discussing preliminary research ideas to disseminating your results.

Contact Kyle Scholz, Educational Developer, Research and Consulting, or Kristen Archbell, Educational Research Associate, or the CTE Liaison for your Faculty, for support at any stage of the research process.

We can help you:

  • Determine an appropriate study design and methodology for collecting data.

  • Identify relevant resources on campus and in the literature.

  • Discuss potential strategies for overcoming challenges in your project.

  • Plan opportunities for disseminating the results of your project to the University of Waterloo community and beyond (e.g., events on campus, conferences, and journals).
