Research Engagement in SLES

Categories and tags:

Research in SLES is focused on two main themes, these are ‘Pedagogy, Coaching and Ethics’ as our first theme and ‘Community and Inclusion’ as our second.

Staff in the community continue to be research active or engaging in doctoral studies, often publishing along the way. Online seminars usefully support the team and the School writing retreats, are less retreating but lots of writing!

The team is contributing strongly to the REF submission for 2021 and whilst this is fantastic news, with a likely high ranking submission (3*/4* predominantly) we are still developing ourselves and our student research community .

Some great work out of the community over the last few months:
