About Us

Who We Are

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Research in Curriculum as a Social Practice (ICRC) collaborates across sectorial and disciplinary boundaries, to think in new ways about curriculum in schools, in our communities, and in higher education settings. 

We actively promote research that challenges reductionist views of curriculum, and is inclusive of previously omitted components of Canadian curricula. For example, we take seriously the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Call to Action (PDF).

Purpose

The Research Centre strives to have a positive impact on curriculum development, policy and practice in ways that best serve learners of all ages. We actively promote research that challenges reductionist views of curriculum, and is inclusive of previously omitted components of Canadian curricula. For example, we take seriously the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Call to Action (PDF) with respect to Education for Reconciliation.
