The integration of applied research into curriculum keeps program content current, relevant, and cutting edge. By engaging in research and working with industry partners on real problems, students develop rigour and marketable workplace skills while faculty members remain current in their field. This session will explore the best practices of Canadian colleges in enriching student learning and supporting effective teaching practice through applied research or inquiry-based learning, with a focus on key success factors and developing a framework for action. Participants will share how their colleges integrate applied research and curriculum, identify specific program areas that are best suited to research and innovation activities in the curriculum, and discuss how faculty are engaged.
