Former Name
Centre for Research in Education (UniSA)

RESI is a centre for inspired, engaged, collaborative and innovative research into educational and social exclusion and inclusion. Our research focus broadly addresses the following questions questions:

How do we guarantee educational inclusion and authentic transitions for diverse and vulnerable populations?

How do we build inclusive and sustainable educational futures for diverse communities?

How do we challenge educators to support learners as divergent thinkers and creators of knowledge for changing futures?

How might we eschew deficit research approaches for diverse and vulnerable populations and build inclusive research partnerships?

In order to undertake this research RESI has developed three different research nodes;

  • Inclusive Communities for Justice and Wellbeing
  • Languages and Literacies
  • de Lissa Early Childhood and Family Studies
