Researching Learning and Teaching

On this page you can find support resources and study opportunities available for higher education scholarship and research.

Developing capabilities

The Master of Education (Higher Education) is a program designed to develop research capability in the field of higher education. This includes areas related to learning and teaching such as: assessment, curriculum, evaluation, language and literacy, student diversity, technology enabled learning and teaching in higher education, as well as academic leadership or management and policy in higher education.

Library resources

Specific journals and databases on learning and teaching are available from the UNSW Library website. The interdisciplinary nature of higher education (HE) research means all Library Subject Guides can be used to locate scholarly resources. The Subject Guide for Education provides an overview of education specific resources.
