  Learning  Outcomes  Lifecourse Enrichment Expertise  Improvement
 
  
 

The Teaching and Learning Research Programme had six distinct aims. They related to performing and promoting excellent educational research and ensuring that it was used to enhance learning. The aims were:

Learning

To conduct research with the potential to improve outcomes for learners in a very wide range of UK contexts across the lifecourse.

To explore synergies between different research approaches and to aim to build UK capacity in conducting high quality educational research.

To commit to the application of findings to policy and practice, to work to maximise the impact of the research and to present it in an accessible way.

Outcomes

TLRP studied a broad range of learning outcomes. These included both the acquisition of skill, understanding, knowledge and qualifications and the development of attitudes, values and identities relevant to a learning society.

Lifecourse

TLRP supported research projects on many ages and stages in education, training and lifelong learning. The Programme was concerned with patterns of success and difference, inclusion and exclusion through the lifecourse.

Enrichment

TLRP was committed to engaging users in its work. It worked in all disciplines and sectors of education and used a wide range of appropriate methodology. TLRP cooperated with other researchers within and beyond the UK whenever appropriate.

Expertise

TLRP worked to enhance capacity for all forms of research on teaching and learning, and for research-informed policy and practice.  
 
Improvement

TLRP worked to develop the UK knowledge base on teaching and learning and to make sure that the knowledge it developed was applied in practice and policy.
