The Centre for the Study of Education and Work (CSEW) brings together educators from university, union, and community settings to understand and enrich the often undervalued informal and formal learning of working people. The CSEW develops research and teaching programs on learning and work. It promotes policy initiatives, and public events connected to both the paid and unpaid workplace, in traditional and new media for learning. The CSEW builds on current course offerings at OISE (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education)/UT (University of Toronto) to help strengthen feminist, anti-racist, labour movement, and working-class perspectives. The CSEW’s working groups focus on social equity in school curriculum, adult education programming, community-university-union alliances, and labour education.
