Living better through learning
At Griffith Institute for Educational Research (GIER), we have one of the largest concentrations of university-based education researchers in the country. We comprise a vibrant community of researchers and research candidates whose applied research with industry partners, education systems, schools, community and not-for-profit organisations is readily translated into practice. We invite collaboration in discovering how new knowledge about learning can address issues related to living with autism, teacher education for 21st century learners, school leadership, and professional and practice-based learning. Many of the issues are being addressed in vulnerable and disadvantaged communities and multidisciplinary workplaces.
GIER has identified Research Programs based on evidence of current, successful research, led by five esteemed senior researchers who are also mindful of new intellectual projects that can drive our endeavours to the next level of productivity and reputation.
The involvement of and broad consultation with this group is crucial to GIER’s ability to realise its vision and to meet its research objectives to create new knowledge about learning.
