Pedagogic research

Following the success of the Pedagogy of Methodological Learning study, research into the pedagogy of social research methods continues in the current five-year phase of NCRM. This research is led by NCRM Co-Director Melanie Nind (Professor of Education, University of Southampton).

The key elements of this work are:

  1. A systematic review of the pedagogic literature published between 2014 and 2020.

  2. Development of evidence-led pedagogic resources and training for NCRM trainers and other teachers of social research methods.

  3. Teacher inquiry projects in which methods teachers/trainers research their own practice and NCRM provides support and links to other similar projects and relevant pedagogic research.

  4. Building a network of colleagues who are interested in researching pedagogy for social research methods.
