Research Themes

Our projects typically map to one or more of our three broad themes:


Educational practice

These projects investigate pedagogic research in:

  • learning and teaching approaches
  • curriculum design
  • the delivery of education and training

Learner and practitioner experience

These projects focus on investigating the experience of students and postgraduate trainees in their work and wellbeing.


Career and workforce

This involves projects that focus on system-level questions, such as:

  • career pathways and speciality choice
  • regulatory issues
  • issues affecting the workforce as a whole


There are also some non-educational projects led by staff in the School.
