Welcome to the Edith Cowan Institute for Education Research situated in the School of Education.

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.

We conduct research and development activities in three research areas:

  • teacher education;
  • leadership and school improvement; and
  • teaching and learning.


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;

Research at the School of Education

The School has a long history of supporting research students, and staff work with students to design and conduct research that has relevance and impact. The School offers on-campus facilities and work spaces at both the Mount Lawley and Joondalup campuses and supports off-campus students via a range of contact strategies.
