In 2009 Joel, along with two other colleagues from Dawson College and one from John Abbott College receved a two year P.A.R.E.A grant to study pedagogy & technology. He is the co-founder and co-director of this web based magazine that explores a multiplicity of topics, always based on a yearly theme, and is interdisciplinary to the core.
