Welcome to CREET

Welcome to the Centre for Research in Education and Educational Technology (CREET). Established in 2004, CREET is an internationally recognized interdisciplinary centre of excellence for educational research.

69% of our research activity was defined as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).

Our world-leading research environment nurtures the development of field-defining contributions within the areas of: Childhoods, Youth and Sport, Education Futures, Languages and Applied Linguistics, and Technology Enhanced Learning.

CREET research blends intellectual originality and empirical rigour to deliver work that impacts both theory and practice. We undertake innovative, outward-looking participatory and collaborative research with learners (and those who support them) to secure beneficial impact on learning theory, practices, policies and public debates.

We work globally and locally to:

Pioneer new approaches to teaching, learning and professional development.
Enable learning through diverse media in a wide range of social, cultural and disciplinary settings.
Lead debate and engage research users in dialogue and the development and implementation of ideas in education.
