Our research

We are research active and engaged in teaching scholarship and health related research projects.

Our teaching scholarship includes:

  • Longitudinal research projects evaluating, for example, the impact of learning designs upon teaching and student learning
  • Scholarship of teaching and learning research, using social research methods (quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods)
  • Action research projects evaluating the impact of a particular innovation for the purposes of describing, explaining and improving upon the innovation

Our health related research projects are related to HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment.
