Economics Research into Education Group (ERiE)

Members of the Economics Research into Education (ERiE) group are interested in applying economics research methods to the study of teaching, learning and the impact of education.

The group provides a friendly and supportive environment for those who are interested in developing their pedagogical research. The group aims to offer evidence-based policy recommendations to assist the Department of Economics and inform good practice in UK Higher Education more generally. Research methods adopted in the group incorporate both economic theory and econometrics.
