Active learning pedagogies
Active learning classroom design (Future Learning Spaces)
Design-based implementation research
Liz’s projects included the design and implementation of innovative pedagogies and techno-pedagogies; design of active learning classrooms; establishment and support of learning communities composed of practitioners and researchers working together to implement evidence-based pedagogical and learn from these implementations using a design-based implementation research model.
DALITE is a tool designed in collaboration with the CIPhER research team. It is a web-based learning platform that provides students with an asynchronous version of peer instruction.
- Innovative Learning Spaces
* PAREA grant (2014-17) investigating the pedagogical ecosystems created by innovative learning spaces and the outcomes of the student engagement. (PAREA – Programme d’aide à la recherche sur l’enseignement et l’apprentissage program of the Quebec Ministry of Education) * Collaboration with the CLAAC project headed by Bruno Poellhuber involving seven Quebec institutions examining the relationship between physical environments, teaching practices, and students’ learning and engagement.
- Research Practice Partnerships
Leveraging new paradigms and disruptive technologies to successfully orchestrate pedagogical change, a project funded by Social Science & Humanities Research Council – College Community Social Innovation Fund (SSHRC-CCSIF). It is a multi-institutional, inter-provincial, team of researchers, practitioners and corporate partners currently investigating how best to promote the scaling of evidence-based pedagogies and leverage the affordances of educational technologies to support collaborative learning.
