The Education Institute research program focuses broadly on the learning, development and wellbeing of children and young people in out-of-school settings such as hospitals, and in schools and the community.
Our interest is in translating this evidence for use in policy, programs and day-to-day practice, with the ultimate aim of improving educational outcomes and the overall wellbeing of children and young people.
Our leaders in research
The Education Institute has a dedicated research team who lead our organisation's projects and investigations. If you are interested in becoming involved as a collaborator, professional or student please contact us.
