Education Graduate Student Research Symposium

February 14, 2023 — 

The Education Graduate Student Research Symposium presented by the Education Graduate Students’ Association (EdGSA) returns on February 23 – 25 virtually via Zoom.

The Education Graduate Student Research Symposium aims to promote the research and scholarly activities of graduate students in the Faculty of Education, allowing students to present and discuss their work in a supportive academic forum. The symposium is open to all students enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program at a Canadian university, as well as students who graduated this past calendar year (2022).

“The Symposium provides a supportive venue for graduate students to share their research and for all who attend to participate in important conversations about educational issues and questions relevant to our city, province, nation, and world.”

The 2023 Symposium theme is Systems That Shape Us: (Re)considering Education, Teaching, and Research. Presenters were asked to (re)consider the systems where they work, study, and live and how those systems shape you and your practice as an educator, student, administrator, policy maker, parent.

The symposium will feature 5 sessions presented over two days on topics such as Disability & Education; Holistic Systems; Truth & Reconciliation; STEM, Gender & Sexuality; Multiculturalism & Allyship, among others.

The symposium will have Dr. Farra Yasin as keynote speaker, Dr. Yasin will share their experiences of being a graduate student and their journey to live philosophically. Farra is an Instructor at the Faculty of Education, and early career academic who recently completed a post-doctoral fellowship from York University on Policy Enactment in Ontario Schools: Mapping the Discourses of Inequity.
