Organization profile

Profile Information

The Higher Education Pedagogies and Policy Research and Enterprise Group (HEPP) undertake Higher Education (HE) pedagogy and policy research and analysis, examining pedagogies in different settings with the primary aims of improving practice and enhancing undergraduate and post graduate student experiences. Led by Professor Gina Wisker, Professor Carol Robinson and Dr Rachel Masika, we undertake Higher Education (HE) pedagogy and policy research and analysis, examining pedagogies in different settings with the primary aims of improving practice and enhancing undergraduate and post graduate student experiences.

Sharing our discoveries is key to our research. We work with colleagues and students as co-constructors of knowledge, and use our findings to inform innovations and strategic developments in policy and pedagogy. We also run research-related events to encourage the dissemination of research findings and to promote collaboration amongst and between staff and students, with the ultimate aim of enhancing the effectiveness of our own and others’ teaching practices.

Our research projects explore specific aspects of higher education learning, teaching and assessment. We benefit from being able to evaluate, analyse and improve practice in action with internally-funded projects based on theory-informed practice. We also gain external funding to develop insights into broader concepts and concerns, we identify and share challenges and good practice with national and international colleagues, and address issues which are of relevance to those working and studying within higher education. These projects enable us to work with partners within the UK and further afield and to make recommendations on wide-reaching issues.
