Teacher Education Research and Innovation Cluster (TERIC)

What we do

What we do

A warm welcome to the Teacher Education Research and Innovation Cluster (TERIC) which aims to promote the work and research of teacher educators, local school partnerships, trainees, serving teachers and postgraduate students of education.  The cluster offers a platform for discussion and debate for all areas of teacher education and promotes the production of high-quality research and publication.

We work with schools, trusts, teaching alliances, universities and charitable organisations both regionally, nationally and internationally to better understand policy, theory and practice within an ever-changing education landscape. We welcome collaboration with other research groups and those with interest in promoting high-quality teacher education.

Research with us

We carry out research with mainstream, independent and rural schools, teaching school alliances and other educational organisations. We evaluate research projects and work with teachers and school leaders to help raise standards. We can provide professional development opportunities in areas such as evidence-based/informed teaching, professional learning, mathematics education and school leadership. Internationally we research and advice in a range of countries around such topics as SEND, Mathematics and educating children from disadvantaged areas.  We have several doctoral students researching a variety of educational areas such as School Direct and University Partnerships, Therapeutic Education, Lesson Study. If you would like further information, then contact Dr Val Poultney: v.a.poultney@derby.ac.uk, Dr Sarah Charles: s.charles@derby.ac.uk or Professor Liz Atkins: l.atkins@derby.ac.uk

Research-informed teaching
