SCIC Seeking Educators for Voluntary Research Study

Study on Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in Saskatchewan

We are looking for Saskatchewan educators who have an interest in social justice, citizenship, development, global, or global citizenship education to participate in a focus group. The purpose of this research is to:

  • assess the current needs of educators to do Global Citizenship Education (GCE) effectively;
  • document progress made over past decades;
  • identify successful teaching methods for GCE, and
  • to identify supports and resources that are needed in the Saskatchewan school system.

The criteria for participation in focus groups are to be an educator in the following school divisions: Regina/PVSD, Saskatoon, NESD/HZSD, LSKYSD/SRSD or Chinook/ Cornerstone school divisions. Other stakeholders in the project include pre-service educators, Faculty of Education and Saskatchewan Ministry of Education staff.

There are no perceived risks involved in the study, and participation is voluntary. If you agree to collaborate in the study, the main investigator will contact you, as per your convenience, by email, phone or in person. The focus group sessions will not take more than 1.5 to 2 hours. You will receive $15 as a token of appreciation for your participation.

This research is being conducted by SCIC and the University of Regina Community Research Unit. This study has received ethics approval from the University of Regina Research Ethics Board.
