Researcher in Residence
As announced in the fall of 2011, CCL will close its doors permanently in the spring of 2012.
CCL deeply appreciates all the support it has received from employees, volunteers and stakeholders since its inception in 2004 and extends heartfelt thanks to all those who have contributed to its success.
CCL's Researcher in Residence program provides co-funding to support a 'researcher in residence' at various learning-related organizations across the country. The program is designed to encourage new research initiatives and increase Canada's capacity to perform important research on learning.
For example, CCL and the Vancouver School Board have launched a three-year partnership to sponsor a Researcher in Residence to work with the district's Community and Inner City Schools projects. The main focus of the research is to identify policies and practices that offer support to students at risk, as well as effective ways to track the progress of at-risk learners. The initiative will help build the School Board's research capacity at both the staff and district program level.
CCL has issued a request for proposals to non-profit organizations interested in participating in this Researcher-in-residence program. This program is designed to encourage new research initiatives that have learning as their principal focus and to increase Canada’s capacity to conduct important research on learning.
