Social and human research experts have a wealth of knowledge and much-needed subject-matter know-how that can transform inquiry and project-based learning across all levels.
As part of The/La Collaborative’s Inquiry community, academics bring their support to teachers who use project-based learning and inquiry methodologies by showcasing the best of knowledge in their field.
During their scheduled classroom visit, experts in the social sciences, humanities and arts can help future undergraduates better understand the importance of their discipline and the role of expert knowledge in addressing societal challenges. The time commitment is short. Teachers are steadily supported by The/La Collaborative’s Connection Brokers. Experts sign up in a few minutes and need little to no preparation. Interactions are rich and informal, just like office hours.
Academics’ engagement caters meaningfully to needs teachers have identified as priorities, all the while encouraging new collaborative practices and knowledge mobilization approaches that fit the role of social sciences and humanities in shaping better societies.
Bring into your classroom one of dozens academics ready to help support your students’ inquiry or project on any topic or sign up to become an expert on our platform.
PhD Students and Postdocs in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts are invited to apply. Priority will be given to students at partner universities, but there might be open spots!
The/La Collaborative and the Canadian History Museum have partnered to help each other provide History and Social Studies teachers with the most relevant resources. Visit CHM’s Teacher Zone to learn about their exciting classroom activities.
