The School of Education has a research culture rich in quality, breadth and depth. Our research is World Class (ERA).

We publish in leading international journals, our research is widely cited by researchers in Australia and overseas, and we collaborate with colleagues all over the world. Research in our School falls into three categories: Learning and Teaching; Curriculum; and Systems and Contexts. Cutting across all of these groupings are three interrelated research themes: wellbeing, equity and innovation.
