Welcome to the Research Centre for Learning and Teaching

We aim to research learning and teaching in a range of contexts, particularly in schools and other formal educational contexts, in order to develop understanding for those who want to improve the quality of education. The Research Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLaT) has acknowledged expertise in a number of areas especially in the application and development of innovative pedagogies, such as learning to learn and thinking skills approaches, in the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) and researching classroom interaction and discourse.

You will find further information on our overall research themes, and specific consultancy and research projects within the pages of this website. If you wish to inquire further on any aspect of our research work then please use the 'Contact Us' link to make a request.
