Pedagogy, Curriculum, Assessment and Learner Engagement (PeCALE)

The PeCALE research focus area seeks to understand curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and learner engagement within a variety of diverse formal educational contexts, as well as informal and community contexts. PeCALE researchers employ a multitude of research approaches and methodologies to explore the complex interrelationships between broad and specific curriculum contexts and approaches, quality of learning and teaching, assessment of learning, and impact on learning. These cover formal and informal educational settings and other contexts.
