CSSE’s annual conference is Canada’s largest gathering of researchers, scholars, graduate students, and practitioners in education. Our mandate is to build connections among educational researchers and those in the field, including teachers, education assistants, school psychologists, school and school district administrators, and others. Join this dynamic four-day conference focusing on theory and praxis in every facet of education, including teacher education, educational psychology, curriculum studies, Indigenous education, women in education, educational foundations, educational research, and comparative & international education. Programming includes a special emphasis on knowledge mobilization, designed for educational practitioners and others working in the field. Knowledge mobilization sessions are scheduled on Sunday, June 2nd, to facilitate attendance. Teachers, school psychologists, education assistants, principals, superintendents, and more are very welcome at our conference.
CSSE is proud to hold its conference at the University of British Columbia. CSSE acknowledges that UBC is situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) People. This land has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam people, who for millennia have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next on this site.
CSSE members who are interested in learning more about the Musqueam people, their culture, and their history are invited to visit the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, the Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at UBC, and the Reconciliation Pole. More information on learning opportunities may be found at UBC’s Aboriginal Portal.
As noted above, the CSSE conference is taking place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam People. CSSE is offering members the opportunity to take a guided tour of Musqueam on June 5th, 2019. Register and pay for the tour through the CSSE Membership Portal. There are two tour options, as follows:
Musqueam Historical Tour
Musqueam Ecological Tour
