Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research
The Wilf Malcolm Institute
of Educational Research was established by the University of Waikato
to undertake, support and disseminate research relating to the broad
field of education. The Institute encourages a variety of research
in education spanning the years of early childhood and schooling
and which may be subject-specific or cross-curricular involving
interdisciplinary research teams. The focus is research on learning,
teaching, curriculum, cultural and literacy issues and policy. Local
studies in classroom research, policy, critiques and reviews are
encouraged, as are studies from national and international perspectives.
Conferences and seminars are organised by the Institute to inform
the academic and professional communities of research undertaken,
and to promote sharing and debate. National and international researchers
are encouraged to visit the Institute and collaborate with staff
and students in the University of Waikato.
