Research in the School of Education examines (i) educational processes in formal and informal settings, and (ii) education as a driver for fair and inclusive societies globally.
Our research into educational processes probes pedagogy, assessment, curriculum and teacher development. In investigating education as a driver for societal change, we focus on disability, inclusion, typical and atypical development, the digital turn, issues around equity and poverty, and language, literacies and mobility.
Our work has provoked new ways of understanding the role of language and language education in addressing social inequality and progress; improved pedagogical practice across the life course in schools and higher education; changed approaches to numeracy and literacy development and assessment, and challenged societal understandings of children and young people’s experiences of discrimination, poverty and disadvantage.
