Off the Shelf

Highlighting research from the newest members of Canada’s education research community.

Every year, thousands of students pursue graduate degrees in the area of education. From leadership studies to curriculum design, from cognitive psychology to the philosophy of education, the field is large and extremely interesting.

An important part of our work at voicEd Radio is to support and amplify the work being done by education students right across the country and that’s why we’re launching season 2 of Off the Shelf, a podcast series dedicated to shining a spotlight on the work to which you have been dedicating so much time and effort over the past several years of your life. In our first season, we heard fifteen from doctoral students from across Canada who had completed or are on the verge of completing their programs. You can hear those conversations here.

In Season 2, we want to hear from more of you about what drew you to your topic of research, where your studies have led you, and the impact that you hope to have on the world of education.

We’re going to be launching the next season of Off The Shelf at the beginning of June 2022, and you’re invited to participate. If you are a Canadian student enrolled in a PhD or EdD program and would like to share your work with the voicEd Radio community, simply provide us with a few details below and we will be in touch with some details of our own, including a discussion framework, and link where you can book a recording time.

Help us connect education research and practice in this unique series of conversations with some of our newest Doctors in the field!
