CEDiR: Cambridge Educational Dialogue Research

Developing dialogic education theory and methodology

The Faculty of Education has a history of world-leading research on educational dialogue. CEDiR’s aim is to consolidate and extend this research, reaching across disciplines and contexts to develop the potential of educational dialogue and to have an impact on theory, policy and practice.

CEDiR members represent a range of Faculty colleagues, drawn together through a common interest in dialogue. The group seeks to promote collaboration and develop capacity at all levels, with a focus on supporting postgraduate students and early career staff. CEDiR is forging links with senior academics and practitioners in the field worldwide and already has a substantial number of high profile international collaborators and associates. Its main priority is on creating a supportive environment for creating and sharing high quality research.
