Research and Impact
Increasingly, global educators are looking to understand how and why formal and non-formal education-based projects are successful. To support these discussions, we have curated a series of publications harnessed from a broad range of global projects led by academics within the WELS (Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies) Faculty. The aim is to provide educators with a solid evidence-base which they can use to inform decision-making within their own educational projects.
Research on community-based education settings in Zimbabwe and non-formal education programmes.
Research around continual professional development in Zambia and use of technology.
An international research and development initiative containing research on learner-centred teaching and best practice in African classrooms.
