Graduates furnished work embodying poetic, fictional, performative, and visual arts inquiry processes and forms in addressing educational and social issues. Ardra, along with others, created several installations portraying life in the academy (Living in Paradox) that were installed in numerous professional / research conferences and institutions.

Ardra has published extensively in conventional and non-conventional academic prose and in alternative, scholarly, non-print media throughout her career as a teacher educator and qualitative research methodologist. Ardra’s ongoing research (with Maura McIntyre) on care and caregiving and Alzheimer’s disease involves multi-media installation–Living and Dying with Dignity: The Alzheimer’s Project, performance–Love Stories about Caregiving and Alzheimer’s Disease, and the World Wide Web–Putting Care on the Map (www.oise.utoronto.ca/research/mappingcare). Her current writing projects include a series of research-based novellas about the teacher education professoriate, But I Want to make a Difference and Of Dogs and Dissertations: Notes on Writing and Life. As she moves through life in the company of dogs, Ardra continues to learn about the meaning of love, loyalty, and living in the moment.

The bringing together of the arts and qualitative inquiry is changing the face of social science research.

Through various categories of art and art-based research - namely epistemological, historical, methodological, thematic - will address all the significant issues of conceiving and conducting arts-based or arts-informed research in the social sciences and humanities, as well as the challenges of composing final representations of the research.
