The Education Innovation Centre is the hub of a research community in education innovation at UWE which extends across international boundaries. We undertake funded and unfunded research projects and support a growing community of doctoral students, investigating a broad diet of technological enhancement topics.

We also provide resources to support research students around the world through our Research Observatory website, which is openly available for anyone to use. We run short courses in research methods in virtual environments (for availability see our courses page) and the team is actively involved in the dissemination of research through international conferences, journals and networking events.
