Symposium Jean-Paul Dionne


Every year since 1985, the Faculty of Education has hosted the Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium to showcase graduate students’ research projects. We welcome participants from across Canada and the United States to join us for this two-day event.

This year's theme is Navigating Transitions: Developing our Professional Identities.Presenters will explore the development of professional identities, establishing academic connections in a post-COVID world, grappling with AI, and discovering new methods of disseminating information.

Professor Jean-Paul Dionne, who joined the University of Ottawa in 1966 as a mathematics lecturer, made significant contributions during his tenure until his retirement in 1996. Widely recognized for his support, intellectual rigor, and expertise in research methods, statistics, and cognitive science, he received the University of Ottawa’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1995. Notably, Professor Dionne founded the Graduate Student Symposium, now the Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium, showcasing his commitment to student success by providing a platform for scholarly presentations and academic engagement.

Check back for the latest updates, as we will soon unveil details about our keynote speaker.
