RESEARCH INFORMED PRACTICE

Our Aurora Academic Charter School teaching and learning team is actively engaged in research and evidence to inform policy and practice.  We publish our school-based and collaborative action research projects on our school website to allow for sharing, dissemination, and use of our research with colleagues and stakeholders from local to international.  Our research is focused on improving student learning success and achievement as engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.

 

Our research partners include the University of Alberta, Simon Fraser University, the University of Calgary, Alberta Education, Alberta Teachers’ Association, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC),and numerous school divisions and universities/faculties.  

As a collaborative and generative teaching and learning community we appreciate your engagement with our research-informed and evidence-based learning team and stakeholders.
