Education in Conflict and Emergencies: IEE and PRDU joint initiative
The Institute for Effective Education (IEE), based at the University of York, is working to establish what works in learning and teaching — and why.
We conduct rigorous evaluations of education programmes and practices. Our research is mainly focused on literacy, numeracy, and science in the UK and overseas, but also includes early childhood education, parenting, widening participation, and the effective use of technology.
We work closely with schools, policy makers, and other researchers to share knowledge and build support for evidence-based education in policy and practice.
We welcome applications from postgraduate students. Watch our new video to find out more.
