Education Research Community

The CFD Team for Research and Evaluation in Education hosts an Education Research Community (ERC) based at the Li Ki Shing Knowledge Institute.

What is the ERC?

The Education Research Community (ERC) is an interdisciplinary mix of aspiring education researchers made up of administrators, educators, and clinical teachers from varied roles, professions, and experience levels with research.

There are 2 formats for the sessions:

  1. Guest Lecture (a lesson from an invited guest)
  2. Open Session (ERC members bring their own work and get feedback from the group, e.g. abstract or presentation for conference)
When is the ERC?

The ERC meets every other Monday from 12-1pm in Li Ka Shing Room 573. Members can pick and choose which sessions are of interest to them. It is a welcoming, informal environment and members are welcome to bring their lunches.

Please contact for more information and to be added to the mailing list.
