Research Networks


eLearning, ePedagogy and Innovation Research Network

The eLearning, ePedagogy and Innovation Research Network has been active in the School of Education. There are members from across most educational disciplines. This has meant that we have branched out into several subgroups with some members in several groups. Please click on the link above for more detailed information on the subgroups, which include, but are not limited to: eLearning/ePedagogy/Identity; Social Media; Practices and Politics of eLearning; Youth Activism; Technologies in Early Childhood; TPACK and Mentoring the Mentors. The aim of each subgroup has been to increase publications and research within the school.

Equity and Diversity Research Network

The Equity and Diversity Research Network is a collective of researchers working in diverse fields. Our aims include increasing publications and research within the school and fostering a community of practice appropriate to our areas of research. Our subgroups include Comparative and International Education, Aboriginal Education and Inclusive Education. Collectively the Equity and Diversity Research Network meets on a tri-monthly basis  while the subgroups meet on a more regular basis. We welcome new members throughout the year.

Languages and Literacies

The Languages and Literacies (LL) Research Network acknowledges the different languages spoken by many learners in Australia (in addition to English) and the need to take account of these languages in educational research.

Learning and Assessment Research Network

The Learning and Assessment Research Network (LARN) provides technical and research support to UNE researchers interested and engaged in supporting regional and rural education, specifically in analysing performance-based assessments, evaluating student learning, and measuring school performance.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Research Network (STEM)

The STEM Research Network is a diverse group with individuals coming from a number of discipline areas and pedagogical traditions in education.
