Research in Education
CELT is the home for our educational research across all phases, nationally and internationally, in and beyond formal settings. Our work is infused with a commitment to educational equity and to increasing social mobility. This is reflected in our research areas:
- Addressing educational inequalities
- Enhancements in pedagogy and curricula design
- Practice-based and professional learning
- Data literacies and digital possibilities (jointly with DFI)
In our work, and collaborations across research institutes we employ and develop a range of research methodologies: participatory, arts-based, auto-ethnographic and statistical.
The research centre draws together specialist educational researchers around these key areas. Reflecting the nature of education, its research is characterised by interdisciplinarity, mixed methodologies and a collaborative research culture. It works to be a supportive environment to develop early career researchers and those researching within a teaching-intensive context.
Educational researchers meet on the first Tuesday of most months 4-5.30pm. Contact email@example.com for further information or to join the group.
