Professional Education and Leadership

The Professional Education and Leadership cluster brings together a diverse group of researchers with the goal of supporting innovative and synergistic collaborations across the School of Social Sciences and beyond aimed at bringing novel theoretical, conceptual and methodological insights to bear on learning and leadership within the professions. We have three strategic research themes:

(1) Digitisation in Professional Learning/Education - examining digital learning and engagement in the professions, and the influence of new digital infrastructures, platforms and devices on professional practice and education

(2) Professional Leadership - examining new ways to develop professional leadership for education and cross-sector public service professionals, theorising professional leadership and related policy, and building leadership in digital education environments (FE/HE/schools).

(3) Professional and Interprofessional Learning and Education - analysing and conceptualising professional and interprofessional learning and practices in changing environments
