KNAER (Knowledge Mobilization in Ontario)
The Equity in Education Hub is developed in partnership with RSEKN which falls under the Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research (KNAER). KNAER is a Ministry of Education funded initiative with the aim of mobilizing research and knowledge in order to improve educational practices and student outcomes.
Connections and Collaboration
KNAER champions thematic knowledge networks that focus on building connections and collaboration in their communities of practice. The thematic knowledge networks connect researchers, educators and provincial organizations across and beyond the education sector in support of the implementation of the Ontario Ministry of Education's renewed vision for education in Ontario: Achieving Excellence.
The thematic knowledge networks build capacity for evidence use and support knowledge mobilization through co-learning, interaction, and leadership at all levels of the education system.
The Four KNAER Networks:
- Indigenous Education Knowledge Network
- Knowledge Network for Student Well-Being
- Mathematics Knowledge Network
- Réseau de Savoir sur l'Equité | Equity Knowledge Network (RSEKN)
