Excellence in research: inspiring creative pedagogies

Our research fosters creative and innovative pedagogies. We examine evidence from learners and teachers to distil key research messages and propose new approaches.

Our projects explore diverse areas including reading, student and child-led research, storytelling, drama, science, geography and promoting inclusion. We research across different age groups from the early years to older children and young people. We work with teachers and learners from across the UK and Europe.

What unites this OU research is a commitment to providing spaces for children and young people to explore their own ideas, use their imaginations, and engage creatively.
