Teacher with young pupils illustrating the Pedagogy, Professional Learning and Organisational Change Research and Enterprise Group

The Pedagogy, Professional Learning and Organisational Change Research and Enterprise Group (PePLOC) brings together researchers and educators with interests and expertise in pedagogy, professional learning and organisational change.  Led by Dr Rachel Marks and Professor Andrew Hobson, we conceive of these elements as multi-dimensional and covering all stages of education, with education and educational professionals defined in a broad and inclusive manner. While teachers and their classrooms are central to much research on pedagogy, our group includes the voices of all education professionals including early-years practitioners, learning support staff, youth workers, and educational leaders.

The group focuses on the levers and processes of improvement and transformation in classrooms, schools, and educational settings across communities, building a critical mass of expertise in these important research areas. Having members with interests across and between pedagogy, professional learning and organisational change allows us to draw on each other’s expertise in developing holistic knowledge and understanding.

PePLOC members engage with a range of research approaches, ensuring a supportive and reflective forum where we learn from each other. Our research interests include, but go beyond:

  • Pedagogy in formal and informal contexts
  • Educators’ initial, early and continued professional development (CPD)
  • Students’ learning as a driver for CPD
  • Professional identities
  • Leadership and innovation
  • Mentoring and coaching
