The Churchie Research Centre seeks to enhance student learning through the translation of applied research

The Churchie Research Centre

Marker East Brisbane, Australia
The Churchie Research Centre will pursue partnerships with leading tertiary institutions to enhance the knowledge, practice and capabilities of Churchie’s teachers. The focus on applied educational research will examine the translation of current and emergent theory into practice by evaluating the subsequent impact. Such a focus recognises the mediating role of the collective impact of teachers.
