Visiting researcher scholars are individuals who possess a Ph.D. or its equivalent, and whose primary purpose for residence at Toronto is to conduct independent research.
CCRD is committed to employing only qualified professionals with at least a PhD Degree in the discipline of competency and a certification in Social Science and Education or ten (10) years research, practical or teaching experience in the discipline of expertise. Our Advisors and Conferences Committees must also demonstrate the emotional intelligence, knowledge and passion required to ensure the confidence of participants in the training offered and trainers’ capability to transfer required knowledge and skills which would redound to the benefit of the trainer, trainee and the success of CCRD.
The structure of the association consists of an executive director whose office is in Toronto along with elected officers and a national governing board. There is an election for officers every two years and the members of the national governing board are appointed by the executive director along with the elected officers.
Quality assurance is an important success factor for CCRD. Bench-marking standards are set from international best practices. Training materials produced by our trainers must meet the standards practice tests, are monitored and evaluated periodically by select quality assurance staff, to ensure professionalism, standards accommodation and application in the training facilitation and implementation processes .All Trainers must first undergo an intense week of familiarization training while facilitators have to then go through a boot camp on the essentials of workshop design and delivery.
Also, We hold an annual fall conference that presents challenging keynote speakers and extensive workshops that investigate a variety of teaching and curriculum issues and strategies – for both elementary and secondary school history and social science teachers.
