Notre missioncropped-CHEA-Logo-short.jpg

L’Association canadienne d’histoire de l’éducation/Canadian History of Education Association (ACHE/CHEA) réunit des professeurs universitaires, des étudiants, des éducateurs, des formateurs d’enseignants et des chercheurs qui étudient le passé éducatif du Canada et d’autres pays. Pour les membres de l’association, l’étude de l’histoire de l’éducation se concentre notamment sur les contextes d’enseignement et d’apprentissage formels et informels (c.-à- d. les milieux scolaires et extrascolaires), les approches culturelles et sociales de l’éducation, l’étude des jeunes et de la jeunesse, et les politiques éducationnelles.

À titre d’association universitaire dynamique, elle offre aussi un réseau interdisciplinaire et international de spécialistes qui se penchent sur les différentes composantes de l’histoire de l’éducation. Afin de soutenir ce dialogue critique, nous organisons une conférence bisannuelle, laquelle se déplace d’une ville canadienne à une autre à chaque édition et permet la publication d’actes dans notre Revue d’histoire de l’éducation. Grâce à notre présence en ligne et à notre participation active sur les médias sociaux, nous contribuons également à la discussion sur de nouveaux aspects de la recherche et les politiques concernant l’histoire de l’éducation.
