The Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education is an interdisciplinary research institute focused on making a difference to children's lives.
The Institute focuses on 21st Century teaching and learning, diversity, innovation and engagement with improving learning outcomes at the core of what we do.
Making a difference
Engage in vigorous, socially relevant and ethically committed research to improve outcomes for children, teachers and the wider community.
We are a national research institute hosting a team of eminent researchers and international scholars undertaking funded research studies with a range of government and industry partners.
We prioritise connecting our research with policy and practice. We achieve this by providing a forum for researchers, scholars, policy-makers and practitioners to collaborate and share evidence-based knowledge to enhance quality teaching and learning.
Our research is premised on the idea that education, health and well-being predicate life opportunities. Researchers undertake investigations that generate new knowledge in education and learning including cognitive and non-cognitive aspects. While we span various disciplines, our common goal is to remove barriers to learning and thereby enhance social and economic participation of all.
