Churchie Research Centre



The Churchie Research Centre, which is located in The Centenary Library, seeks to enhance student learning by supporting the continual professional learning and development for our teachers. The centre will focus on the translation of current theory to evidence-based practice through sustained professional learning.

The Churchie Research Centre will pursue partnerships that enhance the knowledge, practice and capabilities of Churchie’s teachers. Its central focus will be around applied educational research by translating current and emergent theory into practice while evaluating the subsequent impact on both teachers and students. This acknowledges the fundamental role that teachers play in affecting improved educational outcomes for all our students.

The research centre will drive change through a range of support services for the Churchie and wider community through centralising, coordinating and enhancing the current research initiatives with the Swinburne University of Technology (emotional intelligence), the University of Melbourne (Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change) and The University of Queensland (Science for Learning Research Centre).
