Education happens formally and informally in many settings and communities.
This breadth is reflected in a suite of research addressing issues faced by learners and educators with a view to promoting informed and productive communities.
We spearhead research into early childhood, community sports programs, astronomy, digital learning, home learning and wellness programs.
The Early Childhood Research Group conducts research into the experiences of children, families and early childhood professionals in a range of contexts.
We aim to explore and promote the crucial nature of early childhood now and for the future well-being of all children, particularly in relation to communities that are disadvantaged.
