Teacher Learning and Innovations in Practice Research Hub

Research Group Summary

The Teacher Learning and Innovations in Practice Research Hub leads research and inquiry around key problems of practice in order to identify and foster innovative and leading-edge approaches in teaching and learning in all sectors and in teacher education, both preservice and inservice. The Hub provides a site for collegial engagement in support of practice-focused research relating to teacher education and teacher professional learning.

A particular focus of the research hub’s inquiry work is the identification and enhancement of culturally responsive practices. These are practices that positively address the learning and development needs and aspirations of linguistically and culturally diverse children and youth and extend our collective understanding of the bilingual/bicultural learning contexts in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Other areas of interest include: praxis-related research into teacher leadership, curriculum leadership, teacher and teacher educator identity and professional learning, professional learning communities, and school-university collaboration.
