What is an Engaged Educator Project (EEP)?

The Engaged Educator Project (EEP) is an action-oriented educational project where students will engage with the various stakeholders of an organization, network, or community of practice on an issue or opportunity that is meaningful to the group, leading toward meaningful social or structural change for the group.

The EEP will support students in:

  • Working in partnership with an organization, community, network, or community of practice.
  • Understanding and addressing all ethical considerations of such an engaged inquiry, in accordance with UOIT’s Research Ethics Policy and Tri-Council Ethical Guidelines.
  • Learning new processes and methods for stakeholder engagement and inquiry.
  • Conducting, or facilitating, activities with stakeholder groups in an appropriate process (sequence of methods) that supports engagement, participation, learning, and meaningful change.
  • Undertaking this change-oriented process with a clear focus on personal and organizational values.
  • Producing an evidence-based (not assumptions-based) outcome described in a related report, and, in most cases, with related knowledge products.
  • Leading to an inquiry-oriented leadership practice.
