Education research at UQ focuses on international and national policy and school reform; inclusive and socially just education; curriculum and pedagogy; languages and language policy in education; music and human movement education; and the impact of education on social outcomes. The School of Education is one of the most productive centres for education research in Australia. 

Featured Research Projects

The Down Syndrome Research Program (DSRP) based in the School of Education at The University of Queensland is believed to be the oldest, most complete study of its kind anywhere in the world.
UQ researchers are helping teachers make mathematics more engaging and accessible for students, showing how it can be a productive and rewarding tool for life.

For Associate Professor Ian Hardy supervising HDR students is more than just seeing them through their thesis. It also means helping them cultivate an in-depth knowledge in not only the area of education but also other related fields. 

The community based STEM professional learning and teachers of middle years project is an innovative partnership between The University of Queensland, Queensland Museum Network, Shell QGC and Queensland Department of Education.
