ABOUT WALL NETWORK

A grant awarded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), complementing work begun by the NALL (New Approaches to Lifelong Learning) research network, WALL is a part of the Initiative for the New Economy (INE), which aims to help Canadians understand and benefit from the ways in which the global economy is being transformed.

Our network of investigators is composed of researchers from seven universities and more than 10 co-investigators from community groups and professional institutions across Canada. Benefiting from the contributions of international advisors, the WALL research network endeavours to identify gaps in workplace training and education in Canada and bring visibility to current learning and work issues and trends.

The cumulative research generated by the WALL research network will provide a better understanding of current learning practices, processes and environments, and contribute to the production of valuable resources for instructor training, workplace innovation and government initiatives.

WALL is a project of the Centre for the Study of Education and Work.
