The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) is a teachers training college in Toronto, now part of the University of Toronto.
It was founded in 1996 as a merger of the then free-standing Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the Faculty of Education in the University of Toronto (which from 1920 to 1972 was known as the Ontario College of Education).
OISE was a freestanding public degree-granting school before the merger. In 1965, OISE introduced a masters and doctoral program in adult education. In 1967, OISE introduces the first graduate course in comparative studies in adult education.
It has an impressive reputation in research on e-learning, mainly focussed towards school teaching.
