EP 02 – What is the Right Relationship Between Researcher and Educator?

By Rebecca Merkley

The worlds of education research and classroom practice are often seen as two different worlds. Rebecca Merkley is a researcher at Carleton University and Patrick McLeod is an educator in Eastern Ontario. Together, they explore the ways in which stronger relationships between the lab and the classroom can impact the way we do our work—as researchers and as educators.

Series hosts, Rebecca Merkley and Patrick McLeod, are joined by Halton Catholic District School Board educator, Jacqueline Mickle and Mathematics Cognition researcher, Daniel Ansari. In tonight’s episode, the team continues to explore the right relationship between education researchers and educators, the ways in which education research can inform classroom practice, and how the research lab and the school might begin to work in different ways.
