Excellence in Research
UF’s College of Education faculty and graduate students pursue vital, interdisciplinary research that impacts teaching and learning, education policy, and leadership in all education disciplines across the state, nation, and world.
By partnering with multiple stakeholders, education faculty engage in novel scholarship and research activities that enhance “whole school” improvement, human development, student achievement, early-childhood readiness, assessment and program evaluation, teacher preparation and retention, and classroom technology advances.
