Exploring a student research participant tool for the Faculty of Education
Nov 30, 2023 — 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
It is often difficult for researchers and graduate students in education to find participants for their studies. The barriers encountered and the delays they cause in the advancement of knowledge and the trajectory of students are not negligible and it is important to explore solutions to facilitate access to student research participants. At the University, there is an Integrated System of Participation in Research (ISPR) developed by the INSPIRE laboratory of the Faculty of Social Sciences that could be used by our professors and students if it was implemented in our faculty. Come meet with the Director of the INSPIRE Laboratory, Simon Beaudry, to learn more about the ISPR and participate in a discussion about the possibilities of its use in the Faculty of Education. Examples of current educational research conducted via the ISPR will be shared by Professor Ranellucci and doctoral student Alice Neiley.
Director of the INSPIRE Laboratory, Faculty of Social Sciences
Simon Beaudry is the Director of the INSPIRE Laboratory in the Faculty of Social Sciences, where he is responsible for the management of all operational, financial, human, and scientific aspects of the laboratory's operation. Professor Beaudry is an alumnus of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ottawa and holds a PhD in experimental social psychology. His doctoral studies focused on human motivation in the context of relationships, healthy eating, and pro-environmental behavior. He is currently working on research projects on classroom motivation, the use of technology in education, and the dissemination of health promotional messages.
PhD candidate, Faculty of Education
Alice Neiley is a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa. She is currently researching resilience messaging on university campuses and is the co-author of a media/information literacy textbook Navigating the Information Landscape: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Media and Information Literacy, published by Cognella Incorporated. She is also the author of poetry and creative non-fiction in a variety of literary magazines including the Tahoma Review, Eckleburg Review, and the Nashville Review.
Associate Professor, Faculty of Education
John Ranellucci is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education. His program of research focuses on advancing achievement motivation theories and using these theories in the design and application of motivational interventions, with a primary goal of creating a more equitable learning environment. Broadly, his research examines the patterns of relations among context, motivation, emotions, learning, and achievement outcomes in various academic settings, with an underlying focus on supporting underrepresented groups of students and teachers. His teaching interests include theories of learning and research methods.
The invitation is extended to professors and graduate students in the Faculty of Education. We hope you will participate in large numbers.
