The Research Institute for Professional Learning in Education (RIPLE) is at the heart of the Faculty of Education's research activity. Through projects and conferences, we help schools and teachers engage in research, with a particular emphasis on applied research for the improvement of practice. We welcome enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers and individuals or schools interested in commissioning research or developing practitioner research in their organisation.
