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;
- Professional development program to embed inclusive and explicit teaching practices in higher education first year units
- Artworks in residence: Young children’s responses to adult created visual artworks as viewed first-hand within the classroom context
- Using video to support the training of student teachers
