The Faculty of Education is pleased to host its 4th annual Interdisciplinary Lecture Series. The series aims to provide a forum where educators and researchers across the WLU campuses and connected communities can learn from research being conducted in educational contexts from a variety of perspectives. This year, our speakers will examine educational topics as researched from the perspectives of post-colonialism, psychology, linguistics, and kinesiology.
