Welcome to the Edith Cowan Institute for Education Research situated in the School of Education for the Faculty of Education and Arts.
Continuing Edith Dircksey Cowan's contribution to education and Australian society, the Institute's mission is to conduct education research that has high social and educational impacts.
The institute has numerous active research projects over a diverse range of topics. Projects vary from the small, short-term, internally funded projects of individual early career researchers to large, long term, externally funded projects by teams of experienced researchers.
Our current research projects include;
- Identifying effective interactions, including language and visual representations, that develop number sense in primary classroom
- Developing social skills through music: The impact of general classroom music in a lower socio-economic area primary (elementary) school
- Optimisation of STEM education support in Western Australian schools
