Profile Information

Checkland Building, FalmerResearch within the School of Education puts social justice and the development of critical understanding at the heart of its work with people of all ages, and from all walks of life. Using participatory and innovative methods, we generate new knowledge and insights which contribute to shaping local, national and international policy, bringing the vitality of learning and teaching to a range of cultures and environments.

Based in the Checkland Building on the University of Brighton’s Falmer Campus, our research-informed teaching and doctoral supervision ensures a vibrant, contemporary, and relevant experience for our trainee teachers and research students, who emerge to educate and inspire those with whom they engage.

Our research environment and development is built around four thematic Research and Enterprise Groups (REGs): Children and Young People’s Voice and Education REG; Higher Education Pedagogies and Policy REG; Narrative and Biographical Methodologies in Education REG; Pedagogy, Professional Learning and Organisational Change REG.

We draw upon: narrative and biographical methodologies; our keen interest in teacher knowledge, identity and practice; and our enthusiasm for learners’ rights and voice. Through these we build expertise in areas of fundamental pedagogical importance to both individuals and policymakers.
