What is Education Research?

Education research focuses on investigating various aspects of teaching and learning, including diverse pedagogies, curriculum development, student engagement, academic achievement, the socio-cultural factors impacting educational outcomes, and the institutions and conditions in which learning takes place.

Education research can extend into interdisciplinary perspectives from fields such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, neuroscience, and public policy. By synthesizing insights from these disciplines, education researchers aim to address complex challenges facing learners, educators, institutions, and society as a whole.
