The faculty is committed to improving the quality and understanding of education in New Zealand, and internationally, through its teaching and research. In a field as important as education it is critical that practice is informed by research and by evidence drawn from the work of our own staff and from the national and international literature.
To support the continued advancement of this work, the faculty is seeking support from potential donors in the areas of educational leadership, enhancing the quality of teaching, and teacher supply. Further details are included in Leading the Way in High Quality Teaching.
