Learning Environments Research Group

The Learning Environments group investigates issues of culture, language, equity, diversity and inclusion in the areas of teaching and learning. Our aim is to enhance the educational experience of the broader community, including those involved in schools and higher education institutions, as well as other stakeholders. 

International Perspective Our international perspective allows us to study in-depth the cultures, language and general diversity of 21st-century students.
Digital Futures Our own research on digital teaching and learning underpins our understanding of technology for enhancing the student experience.
Higher Education Our investigations into student culture and language use enable us to promote a more equitable higher education experience for a wide range of students.

We are currently engaged in a longitudinal study on Inclusive Education for Refugees funded by the Spencer Foundation.

Team leader: Dr. Julia Miller
