Our research

Educational research at Deakin is based on critical collaborations with key stakeholders, international scholars and agencies including government, industry and schools.  We engage in purposeful, strategic knowledge transfer through scholarly publications and professional forums which impact education policy and practice.

Our researchers regularly win grants for significant research projects. Our funders include the Australian Research Council (ARC), and external organisations such as government agencies, private industry, the not-for-profit sector and other universities around the world. We conduct educational research ‘the Deakin way’ – prioritising research for education rather than research on education.

We take 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 addresses local and global challenges, and positively impacts educational theory, policy, teacher practice and student learning.
