Pedagogical Research

What is Pedagogical Research (PedR)?

Skelton (2005) states that there is a clear difference between PedR and Pedagogical Development (PedD); PedD is small scale, whereas PedR is large scale. This means that PedR has the potential to be carried out across multiple departments, and have statistically significant evidence to inform wide ranging changes.

Examples of projects carried out at the University of Leicester:
