The digitally-connected world has the potential to increase educational opportunities for all members of society. Our research considers how to improve belonging, success and retention for students in a diverse range of situations and from a diverse range of backgrounds.
We investigate the ways in which assessment can support inclusion, and the implications for assessment design and the use of technology in assessment. We also explore broader ways of enhancing social justice through open and online higher education. Examples can be found in the CRADLE book Assessment for Inclusion in Higher Education.
We have examined student failure and persistence, including student experiences and responses to failure and how students adapt to failure as well as supporting the success and retention of equity group students, including work funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE).
