Education research at Wesley College fosters the development of teacher professional practice in support of student learning and growth.
In 2005 Sir Gustav Nossal celebrated evidence-based research approach to teaching and learning, and curriculum development and assessment identified what worked best and had a direct impact on the learning of every student in our classrooms.
Wesley research has direct application for teachers in our classrooms and beyond, to support students in their learning.
Real-time information on students’ progress
Research is shaping how Wesley teachers use information about student learning to improve their learning outcomes by taking a ‘biopsy’ approach, rather than a ‘post-mortem’ approach, to data analysis.
Learning about Indigenous ways of knowing
Research by Annette Rome and Kim Anderson has found that non-Indigenous teachers and students develop a robust understanding of Indigenous ways of knowing through an inquiry-based approach to learning.
