Established in 1988 and based at Concordia University, the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance (CSLP) is a research centre consisting of over 100 full members and collaborators, 20 support staff, and over 200 graduate students. Researchers are from Concordia (Education and Psychology), McGill, Université de Montréal, UQAM, UQAC, Bishop's, Johns Hopkins, Simon Fraser, UBC, Queen’s, Guelph, and McMaster universities, and John Abbott, Vanier and Dawson Colleges.
CSLP partnerships span the Ministry of Education (Anglophone Services), the LEARN-RECIT, the nine English language school boards, and some French language school boards. The CSLP is actively involved in several Québec-based research networks and bodies such as the Centre de transfert pour la réussite éducative du Québec (CTREQ) and Health-Care Access for Linguistic Minorities (H-CALM).
We also collaborate with a variety of school districts and ministries outside of Quebec, along with the Success For All Foundation, the Institute for Effective Education at York University (UK), the Royal Conservatory of Music, the School for Social and Policy Research at Charles Darwin University (Australia), and the EPPI Centre (UK) and the CSLP is an affiliated Campbell Collaboration (Oslo, Norway) centre.
The CSLP has led a variety of innovative research and development projects, involving hundreds of students from elementary, secondary and postsecondary educational institutions.
