The ESRC Education Research Programme 2021-26
Empowering educators across the UK: bringing research into conversation with education policy and practice
Understanding the role of teachers and technology in schools
At the heart of the ESRC Education Programme are a cohort of nine research projects exploring two broad thematic areas in education:
- teaching and learning, focusing on the role of teachers, their recruitment, retention and professional development
- the uses of technology in teaching and learning.
The research projects are also exploring new ways of working in partnership on questions that matter in different parts of the UK.
The programme encourages the wider education research community to join the debate on the forms such partnerships might most usefully take. See the events and resources pages for more details of how to get involved.
