Research into Higher Education
Research into the Higher Education Community revolves around two vital pillars: supporting practice research and sharing best practices. We encourage the application of evidence-informed practices within teaching activities, transforming classrooms into laboratories for innovation and growth. By providing the tools and support needed, we enable educators to make data-driven decisions and continually enhance the student learning experience.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing are at the core of our community. We serve as a dynamic hub for the exchange of ideas and insights among university teachers and educational professionals. This CoP collectively supports three PhD students and their research within the field of graduate employability, the well-being of academic staff and students, and the professionalization of online/blended/hybrid education.
PhD projects supported by TAG & CoP Research into Higher Education
TAG supports three PhD students, who are supervised by core members of the CoP Research into Higher Education. Bi-monthly, the students meet with the CoP to elaborate on their progress and challenges. Explore the three PhD pieces of research we support below.
