Our research directions Our research directions

The Centre for Applied Research in Education (CARE) brings together researchers with an interest in:
  • Advancement of applied educational research through offering a critical lens on methodology that cross-cuts the School research groups, encourages innovation, creativity and facilitates interdisciplinary conversations.
  • Critical engagement with educational evaluation and policy, particularly through introducing ethnographic, participatory and other qualitative approaches, in order to engage a greater diversity of stakeholders and to question the relationship between knowledge and social change.
  • Internationalising research and teaching cultures through developing an intercultural perspective on research methodology, creative approaches to educational partnerships across countries and continents, and exploring communicative practices within higher educational institutions.
