Our proactive and flexible research networks encourage collaboration and mentoring.

Research Networks

Our research networks pull together members of staff and postgraduate students who share common research interests and allow a flexible and less formal way to explore different themes.

Members of staff can participate in whichever networks best match their interests. Network boundaries are flexible, and collaborative research across the networks and centres is actively promoted. By clustering our research around these specific areas we can encourage:

  • mentoring by people who are specialists in the same research area
  • collaborative bid writing and writing workshops
  • flexibility in allocated research time, to meet the demands of externally-funded research

Our current active research networks include:

Education Theory Reading Network

The aim of this network is to provide a platform for discussion centred around issues in education theory.

Language and Education Network

This network draws together researchers who have an interest in the relationship between language and education.  This includes research into first and second language teaching and learning and research into the roles language plays in education more broadly.

Religion, Spirituality and Education Network

This group brings together researchers with an interest in the areas of spirituality, religion and education and provides a space to explore and develop themes across these areas.
