Research and Development Collaboration and Partnerships

Our interests and commitments find expression through our research and development work. Our work is aimed at creating high quality applied, empirical and theoretical research-based knowledge about Educational Leadership, Learning and Innovation.

We are committed to an ethos of collaboration in our work as a group. We value research and development that is useful for informing policy and practice. As such, our work involves developing and contributing to fruitful collaboration and joint work with practitioners, policy-makers, and academic colleagues in local, national and international networks, partnerships and communities.
