Curriculum library

Among all the University of Victoria Libraries, the Curriculum Library serves the learning, teaching, and research needs of students in the Faculty of Education. In addition to friendly staff, the Curriculum Library has inviting work spaces, study rooms, computer stations, laptops for loan, and is a food-friendly library.  You’ll find professional resources, textbooks for K-12 classrooms, teacher guides, curriculum documents, puppets, and a vast selection of literature for children and teens.

Digital Studios

We also offer a number of digital studios with workstations and equipment supporting a broad range of production software.

Studios are available for bookings and most are available for drop-in use outside of regular hours.

Subject Resource Centres

We have a number of subject specific resource centres offering a rich array of books, lesson plans and equipment to help aspiring and practicing teachers as well as teacher-educators.

Centre for Outreach Education (CORE)

The Centre for Outreach Education (CORE) is a multidisciplinary centre dedicated to enhancing the education of children and youth, which started thanks to a generous bequest from a retired primary school teacher. Part of CORE's mandate is to offer its services and expertise off campus as well as welcoming the community to its on-campus space in the MacLaurin Building.

Behavioural Medicine (BMED) Lab

The Behavioural Medicine (BMED) lab is a research lab within the School of Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education. Their mission is to produce and disseminate innovative and population-relevant physical activity and health research of the highest calibre within an environment that fosters collaboration, community, pride, and life balance.

Rehabilitation Neuroscience Laboratory

The main focus of the Rehabilitation Neuroscience Laboratory is to develop, disseminate, and apply knowledge of basic and clinical neuroscience to rehabilitation of limb movement after neurotrauma. All projects are designed to answer both basic research questions and also to lead into applied studies with rehabilitative applications in different pathologies.

The Neuroeconomics Laboratory

The principal focus of Neuroeconomics Laboratory is the study of neuroeconomics (an integration of the principles of neuroscience, psychology, and economic theory). The lab uses neuroimaging techniques such as electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging in conjunction with computational modelling to improve our understanding of the neural processes and computations that underlie human learning and decision making.

Technology Integration and Evaluation (TIE) Lab

The purpose of the TIE lab is to strengthen research excellence regarding the appropriate use of networked and computer‐mediated technologies for enhanced communication, learning, and motivation across educational, professional, and health sectors. The TIE lab provides state‐of‐the‐art Infrastructure for systematically researching optimal e‐learning conditions, tools, processes and products.
