Professor Greer Johnson - Director, Griffith Institute for Educational Research
The Griffith Institute for Educational Research (GIER) is home to more than 250 researchers and research students, making it one of the largest concentrations of university-based education researchers in the country.
The Institute encourages cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research with industry and systems that define research in education beyond traditional expectations.
Research funding from the Australian Research Council and the Federal and State governments has consistently supported Griffith’s education research into its three distinct but inter-related key research themes focused around Leading, Learning and Change. These research-focused themes are Leadership and Learning; Education, Curriculum and Technology; and Professional and Practice-based Learning. The impact of the theoretical and practical outcomes of research undertaken by the Griffith Institute for Educational Research includes those for schools with low socioeconomic and Indigenous populations, Australian workplaces and communities, to deliver positive social dividends for Australians of all ages and circumstances.
