Graduate Learning Series & Groups

S.T.A.T.S Group

S.T.A.T.S (Statistics Teaching and Training for Students) brings together faculty and graduate students to foster development of the statistics community in the Queen’s Faculty of Education. We aim to make statistics accessible to our community by providing resources, workshops, and personal connections. With a model of fostering growth through mentorship, we facilitate a range of statistics workshops run by our faculty and graduate students. All workshops are paired with graduate-student run introductory sessions. These optional sessions contain all of the necessary information needed to get the most out of the workshop.

Graduate Student Series

The AEG Graduate Student Series offers an ongoing platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and guidance amongst group members to support growth and development of graduate students in the areas of scholarly skills, assessment, measurement, program evaluation, and knowledge mobilization.

Prospective Graduate Students, Supervision, & Visiting Scholars

The AEG welcomes new graduate students and visiting scholars each year to study and collaborate with us. The AEG aims to augment students’ graduate studies experiences in Education through focussed supports and research as well as internship opportunities in areas of assessment, evaluation, measurement, language testing, and knowledge mobilization.

The AEG is part of Queen’s Faculty of Education and located in historic Kingston, Canada. Founded in 1841, Queen’s University was the earliest degree-granting institution in Canada and now has more than 4,200 graduate students and over 22,000 full-time students. Since 2003, Queen’s has consistently been within Canada’s top two institutions for the number of faculty research awards and prizes each year, demonstrating Queen’s intensive research environment and the opportunities for graduate student learning. In the Faculty of Education, we use a collaborative research mentorship model in which graduate students work closely with faculty members on research that matters to students, teachers, and schools.


Prospective Masters Students

The AEG faculty members regularly teach in the Queen’s Faculty of Education Master of Education Program. If you are looking to study at the Masters level, you do not need to identify a supervisor prior to applying via the Queen’s University admission process. You can find information about applying to the MEd program at Queen’s Faculty of Education including admission requirements and procedures at: https://educ.queensu.ca/masters


Prospective Doctoral Students

The AEG faculty members regularly supervise PhD students in the Queen’s Faculty of Education Doctorate of Philosophy Program (PhD). While doctoral program admission is highly competitive, if you are interested in pursuing at PhD with one of the AEG faculty members we will work closely with you to prepare a competitive application for the university-based admissions process. Information about admission requirements and the admission process is available at: https://educ.queensu.ca/phdIn advance of supporting any prospective student for the university-based admission process, the AEG faculty members will review your CV and a brief research statement. For those students with strong alignment with our area of expertise, we will also connect via tele/video-call to ensure your interests align with one of our faculty members’ research profiles. In our experience, we have found these steps help in ensuring greater success in our programs, if admitted. If you meet the admission requirements for a PhD in Education (see: https://educ.queensu.ca/phd), complete the following form, which will allow the AEG faculty members to learn more about you and your research interests. You will be asked to upload a curriculum vitae (resume) and cover letter (a statement that describes your intended area of research and reasons for wanting to study with an AEG faculty member): queensu.qualtrics.com

Please note that these steps are not formally part of the admissions process; rather, they are intended to determine alignment between your interests and your potential supervisor’s interests, with the aim of better supporting you during the admissions process. The AEG faculty members will review all documents and expressions of interest for supervision and will reach out to you to set-up a tele/video call, if we determine that there is potential alignment between your profile and our capacity to supervise your interests. We aim to conduct our tele-video calls in October/November each year. If an AEG faculty member agrees to support your application for graduate studies, they will work directly with you to further develop your application for submission to the university admission process, which closes mid-January yearly. Due to our mentorship approach to supervision, AEG faculty members are unfortunately unable to endorse all students who express interest in completing graduate studies with us. Our aim is to work with those whom we feel we can best support through our program.


Visiting Scholars

AEG faculty members welcome the opportunity to host visiting scholars who share common research interests. Visiting scholars must be self-funded and first establish a productive research relationship with one of our AEG members. To express interest in being a visiting scholar with one of the AEG faculty members, please contact the faculty member directly.
