Core Area 3: Research
Research is an important tool to inform practice. With a full time Research Lead, we conduct research that provides an insight into Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in ITE, in particular we gather and analyse data to demonstrate the impact of Ubuntu supported partnerships and projects. We also provide a research hub for members, pointing to current research on GCE and mentoring them where appropriate to conduct out practice-based research, and supporting dissemination of outputs to relevant target audiences.
An exploration of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in Irish Higher Education Institutions arising from the implementation of the Ceim standards.
As Schools/Departments of Education in HEIs work towards reaccreditation in light of the 2020 Ceim standards, GCE is being re-envisaged and reshaped. This research project seeks to determine the nature and format of GCE integration across member institutions in line with Ceim and other national and international policy developments.
The research repository provides an insight into a range of research outputs that can be used to inform practice among Ubuntu Network members. It includes academic papers, reports, case studies and articles.
