Educational Psychology Research Unit

The UCL Psychology Department’s Educational Psychology Research Unit carries out research on inclusive practice and educational innovations. In recent years this has focused on (a) factors that influence social inclusion and achievement in schools, in particular for children who have special educational needs and (b) the development and evaluation of innovative approaches to the acquisition of professional competence in educational psychology. Particular highlights include:

  • The exploration of factors influencing social acceptance and belonging for children who have special educational needs. A range of personal and environmental factors, and their interaction are being investigated and modeled. Findings from this work are beginning to be used to develop interventions that allow causal hypothesis among the factors identified to be tested and form the basis of potentially important programmes for schools.
  • The role of new technologies in enabling problem-based approaches in educational psychology training, in particular web-based support for the development of practitioner assessment, research and consultation skills.
