Research for Educational Impact

Deakin University’s Strategic Research Centre in Education, Research for Educational Impact (REDI) is located within the School of Education.

Research impact

REDI takes an outward-facing approach to delivering and translating high quality research and research training into outcomes that are relevant and meaningful to communities. We produce research that positively impacts educational theory, policy, teacher practice and student learning.

Our research is focussed around four distinctive themes, and is led by renowned scholars in collaboration with highly active and successful educational researchers from a number of disciplines, as well as from the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE).

Our four research themes are:

  • Diversity and Social Justice in Education
  • Education Governance and Policy for Sustainable Societies
  • Learners in a Digital World
  • STEM Education for Sustainable Futures

One of our key goals is to ensure that our knowledge is translated into practice and that we ask the big questions of educational research
