Welcome!

I am an Associate Professor, Emeritus, in the Dept. of Curriculum, Teaching & Learning (CTL) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) of University of Toronto (UofT). Through this site, you can learn about my educational background, previous teaching and ongoing research & publication programme. I also provide open access to numerous educational resources Рmany of which I have developed, while others I provide through links here. If you have questions or suggestions about anything you find on this site, write to me at: larry.bencze@utoronto.ca.

Since retiring (July 1, 2018) from teaching and most university service, I mainly work on my research & publication programme (STEPWISE). This often involves collaborative action research to promote and understand teachers’ efforts to educate students about harmful relationships among fields of science & technology and societies & environments (STSE) and to help them to develop and implement sociopolitical actions to overcome harms they identify in such relationships. The video at right, with elaborations here, is aligned with this work. Action research related to STEPWISE has generated numerous educational resources that I have shared through the Resources link above.
