Department of Education Research Seminars

Research in the department is organised under themes which demonstrate our focus on learning across the life-course.

Research Groups and Centres are nested within the themes and provide opportunities for research staff and higher degree students to obtain critical commentary on ongoing research, develop their research thinking and plan new research projects.

As part of this activity, groups and centres present a full programme of seminars which are advertised on the Department’s website and on individual group events pages. Some of these are recorded and will be deposited on this page.
