Authored by staff from the School of Education (2013)
Research in the School of Education is theoretically informed and seeks to advance educational and social justice. Our students and staff are working to explore, adopt and promote cutting-edge approaches to educational technology, teacher training, pedagogy, curricula, the inequalities and opportunities generated by educational practices, educational policy, educational organisations, educational leadership and the politics of education. We draw upon a range of disciplines and theoretical perspectives, including critical political economy, philosophy, political theory, social policy, science and technology studies, social and intellectual history, psychology and sociology.
The high quality of our research is recognised internationally by academic, policy making and practitioner communities.
Our collaborative research culture facilitates joint working between students and staff in the School, and encourages cross-disciplinary research with colleagues from across the University. The School holds regular seminars and conferences for you to share your knowledge and hear from experts in the field.
