Online Access to Education Journals

We provide all registrants with free online access to the Education Source - EBSCO package and the Leadership & Management Learning Centre. Education Source is a collection of over 1,700 education journals.

EducationHub

EducationHUB is an interactive online platform that provides an opportunity for education practitioners to share, discuss and review unpublished practitioner produced research and enquiry.

Current Academic/ Practitioner Research

Each month we feature research recently completed or published. This could be practitioner, academic and/ or grant funded educational research.

Recommended Research and Reading

We know teachers are 'interest rich and time poor' so each month the Research Engagement Group recommends a selection of education journals and articles that may be of interest.

Practitioner Enquiry

Education professionals will be expected to develop an enquiring disposition towards their professional practice.

  • What is practitioner enquiry?
  • Why engage with practitioner enquiry?
  • What it means to be a teacher engaging in enquiry

  • Research and policy informing this work

Research Engagement Group

A Research Engagement Group has been set up to help support, promote and facilitate critical engagement with research. A range of colleagues across the education community who are currently actively engaged with educational research and/ or supporting others engaging with research were invited to be part of the group.

Teacher Researcher Programme

In response to national developments relating to teacher professional learning, including the revised Professional Standards and introduction of Professional Update, the Teacher Researcher Programme is currently being reviewed and developed.
