The Centre's programs share a common purpose, which is to investigate and provide innovative research to inform policy in priority areas.
The Centre for Research in Educational Futures and Innovation has well developed national and international collaborative research networks and partnerships around three major interrelated programs of research.
- Science, mathematics, environmental and health education for sustainable communities - Convenor Professor Russell Tytler
- Curriculum, pedagogy, and culture - Convenor Professor Christine Halse
- Governance, policy and educational leadership- Convenor Professor Trevor Gale
- Education profession, workforce studies and knowledge dissemination
Students, teachers and academics experimenting with new approaches benefit most from educational innovations produced through complementary and synergistic research strengths. We encourage and support interdisciplinary research across the 4 Research Programs within the School of Education and Faculty, and across other research centres including but not only the following themes.
- Internationalisation and intercultural education
- Globalisation and higher education
- Spatialised pedagogies and visual methodologies
