Oxford Brookes has a long history of a commitment to institutional and national pedagogic research. This represents an important aspect of the University's research portfolio and is one of the ways in which we at Brookes ensure links between teaching and research and evaluate the impact of our pedagogic developments.
These pages are maintained by OCSLD. OCSLD staff conduct pedagogic research themselves and champion and co-ordinate work with discipline based staff to evaluate, investigate and improve teaching, learning and assessment in higher education. We are available to support the research process such as by undertaking literature searches, discussing your plans for research, helping with data collection (such as advising on the design of surveys or conducting interviews or focus groups with your students), critical review of draft papers and preparing bids.
On these pages you will find information about current pedagogic research interests and projects, and support for undertaking research yourself. If you have any questions, or would like to be more involved in our research, please contact Rhona Sharpe.
