The University of Tasmania is committed to enhancing educational attainment in Tasmania. The foundation for educational attainment and its benefits for health, community and relationships, productivity, wellbeing is laid in early childhood development and education.
The Faculty of Education conducts innovative, evidence-based and rigorous research designed to make a difference. We focus on ensuring equitable access to education and educational attainment, as well as the health and wellbeing of young learners and adults within educational institutions and communities. Key areas of primary importance and research depth include Early Years; Trauma-informed Practice; Creative Pedagogies which encompasses Language in Education and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning; and the Active Work Laboratory which seeks to influence workplace behaviour.
Wherever possible we want to work with stakeholders to co-design our approach to research and a vision for the future. Please contact us to get involved.
