Welcome back to another year in EDST!
For those of you who are new to the department, from the blog team I’d like to extend a warm welcome. The department is a wonderful community to join, hosting talented teaching and research faculty, as well as a dynamic and welcoming student population. The department is unique in that it includes a wide variety of research areas across education, allowing us to speak with, learn from, and work with others across multiple disciplines.
The intention behind creating the EDST blog was to create an online forum where students, faculty, and staff can engage with educational ideas, practice communicating in new ways, and act as public intellectuals.
With this intention in mind, I’d like to invite all EDST students, faculty, and staff to submit to the EDST blog.
Submissions may take on many forms, including:
- Blog posts (500-1,000 word) describing a research topic, conference presentation, course reading, or other topics within educational research.
- Reflections on University life,
- For example, this post by Samantha Robinson on UBC’s “Masters of Education, Adult Learning & Education” program.
- Posts incorporating activities or poetry,
- Posts incorporating multimedia, such as photos, video, audio, or other forms.
- See: this post on Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass, by Jessica Lussier.
Above are just a few examples of how the blog has been utilized by EDST members- what else would you like to see? Comment below with ideas, suggestions, or feedback for the EDST blog,
