Faculty of Education academic group

Academic Groups

The Faculty's academic groups bring together staff and research students with cognate research interests in particular areas of education, to develop research projects, joint activities and share expertise. As well as meeting more informally, many of the academic groups organise open seminar series.

Together, the academic groups indicate the main areas of educational research in which the Faculty is currently active. The homepage for each group details its activities and members, and indicates its chair and convenor.
