Teaching and Learning Research Initiative

The TLRI aims to:

  • build a cumulative body of knowledge linking teaching and learning
  • enhance the links between educational research and teaching practices—and researchers and teachers—across early childhood, school, and tertiary sectors
  • grow research capability and capacity in the areas of teaching and learning

The growth of research capability and capacity is a reciprocal process that:

  • builds the capability of researchers to undertake quality research, through engaging in high-quality research and working with other researchers with varied levels of experience
  • enables teachers to gain expertise in systematic enquiry, as they engage as active members of a research team
  • builds the capability of teachers to improve their teaching practice by learning from the findings of research
  • deepens researchers’ understanding of teaching and learning by engaging with teachers
