About GION education/research
GION education/research is part of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences.
We contribute to better education by conducting academic research. Our goal is to expand the body of knowledge about education and to improve educational practice. Our research is executed at different levels and topics:
- Learner, teacher and instruction
- School boards & educational policy
- Society, culture & politics
- Educational research methodologies
Some of the research projects are commissioned, for example by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science or the Municipality of Groningen. Other research projects are funded by NWO or NRO. Research is conducted on topics such as the design of learning environments, the organization of teaching, the design of quality assurance and good governance, students’ learning careers, and issues of success rates and further educational prospects.
Additionally, GION staff members provide education in various programs of the University of Groningen.
