Education Research Network

The network creates and promotes a variety of activities to this end, including (but not limited to) Education RAW (in collaboration with Creative Agency), The New Directions in Education Research Speaker Series, and Interactive Workshops focused on research methodology and community-building. Please email for inquiries.   

Education Research Network RAW

The purpose of Education RAW is to promote interdisciplinary research led by the SOE, a monthly series. The series is co-sponsored by the Education Research Network and Creative Agency. This is an opportunity to be part of a discussion group to share research-related news and concerns.

All Education Research Network RAW sessions take place at Bourke Street, City Campus Building 108, Level 5. Anyone with an interest in the topic is welcome!
