Learning Frontiers

The world, and the world of education, are constantly changing.

Two people learning

This requires our educators to constantly adapt, refine and upgrade their approaches to ensure the best outcomes for students. Our researchers are exploring a wide range of areas of innovation and change in learning, teaching and assessment. Research areas include technology enabled learning and assessment, how we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and its educational impact, and facilitating student engagement and wellness.
