Academics in the Curtin University School of Education conduct world-class research on a variety of important topics, employing a wide range of methodologies. We explore critical issues that help inform improved practice for children, students, educators, leaders and policy makers across Australia and around the world. The School has a proud tradition of excellence and achievement in research, boasting many award-winning scholars, prestigious funded projects, highly cited publications and publicly engaged academics who join in and shape public discourse on contemporary issues.
Our research efforts are organised around nine Research Clusters, which are led by highly regarded scholars.

- Early Childhood Education

- Teacher Education and Curriculum
- Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis
