College of Education faculty at the University of Washington are skilled researchers who fully appreciate the practical realities of schools and classrooms. They conduct innovative research that takes into account these realities while addressing the wide array of issues facing education today.
Because these issues tend to be extraordinarily complex, the College has established several research centers that allow individual faculty to share knowledge and coordinate their research activities in defined areas such as multicultural education, educational leadership, science and math, special education, teacher education, and learning in formal and informal settings.
Continuing and constantly emerging collaborations across disciplines and communities have led to a wealth of projects on a variety of topics but with the common goal of making education more accessible to and more effective for every learner, from early education through K-12 schooling, to higher education and beyond.
College of Education faculty are involved in every important area of education research, These activities fall into three broad categories: teachers, learning, and learners; policy and education reform; and methods of research and inquiry. Each category includes research topics specific to individual faculty members, reflecting the diversity of interests unified by a shared commitment to the College’s mission.
The College provides a variety of resources to support faculty research.
Research That Matters, published annually, gives insights into the College's current research projects.
