The Centre for Research in Equity and Advancement of Teaching and Education(CREATE) led by Associate Professor Joanne Dargusch, is a research centre designed to deliver Australia’s only comprehensive approach to new innovations in education aimed at delivering equitable education, training and employment pathways for regional Australians. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of CREATE’s approach. By working with communities and industries, we aim to improve educational opportunities for all regional Australians, through creative thinking to unlock new ways to access meaningful learning and teaching.
Together with community and industry, CREATE researchers are investigating Innovations in Education through five main research clusters:
- Learning and Innovation for Equity in Education (LIFEE)
- Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Education Research (STEM-ER)
- Applied Arts and Regional Communities (AARC)
- Empower: Education for Global Competence and Sustainable Development
- Agri-tech Education and Extension
