The Psychology in Education Research Centre (PERC) conducts innovative and applied psychological research relevant to education and educational settings. Our goal is to explore these factors in a manner that is both rigorous and broadly accessible to the psychology and educational communities.
We employ a range of methodologies to explore six related themes underlying psychology in education.
