Much of our research activity is organised through six different research centres. These pages also indicate areas of specialism for those interested in postgraduate and postdoctoral research.
The centre sees education as a site of study for wider, contested processes such as development, globalisation and technological change. Its members believe that education is a lifelong and lifewide process that should promote social justice, equality, citizenship and democracy. Centre members have conducted research in all regions of the world.

The centre's focus is on the arts, creativity and learning. The centre researches in schools, universities, museums and galleries, theatres and cinemas, and local neighbourhoods. They work with teachers, artists, writers, museum and gallery educators, community groups and arts and cultural organisations, big and small, locally, nationally and internationally.
The centre is a national and international centre for cutting edge research in educational leadership and management and teachers' work, lives and effectiveness. Its members contribute through research, teaching, publication etc, to the development of high performing leaders, teachers and organisations.
The centre studies the processes and outcomes of optimal functioning, with particular interests in well-being, human potential, agency and autonomy, character strengths, social behaviour and human systems. The centre adopts an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the nature of social environments that best nurture development.
The centre is known for the quality of its research and design on mathematics education policies, curricula, assessment, continuing professional development and classroom practice. Its particular strength lies in its emphasis on designing and analysing processes, products and experiences with and for teachers and learners.
The Learning Sciences Research Institute is a vibrant, multi-disciplinary group who are learning about learning - through collaboration, invention, implementation, and dissemination. Our work explores the fundamental processes and practices of learning by researching within preschools, schools, universities, colleges, workplaces, and informal learning centres.
