ERDU Mission: The relationship between higher education and employment is at the heart of the research, development, and assessment undertaken by the Educational Research & Development Unit. There are three major activities:

  • Conduct innovative research on the knowledge, skills, and values critical for university and college graduates in the changing world of work;
  • Develop creative programs and courses which promote student-centred learning;
  • Accurately assess educational outcomes in order to continuously improve what we do.
