Dal, UQO announce new research chairs in Jewish Studies, education


Dalhousie University and Université du Québec en Outaouais have both announced new research chairs. Dal’s inaugural Simon and Riva Spatz Chair in Jewish Studies replaces a visiting chair program with a tenured appointment. The chair, which will be held by Dr Eva Mroczek, will focus on expanding Dal’s educational opportunities in Jewish Studies; creating new courses with multi-disciplinary approaches; and connecting students and scholars with Jewish Studies. UQO has partnered with the Center de services scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys to create a research chair focused on innovation and best practices in education. The chair will focus on analyzing educational contexts, evaluating educational practices, and implementing and improving best practices.
