Ph D : Centre for Educational Research and Innovation




  • What might education systems and institutions look like in the future?

  • What can we learn about possible future options from current trends?

  • How are patterns of teaching and learning changing in the face of scientific advances, new technologies and diverse student populations?

  • And how do we know what the effects of education are?

These are just some of the questions tackled by our Centre for Educational Research and Innovation in its multidisciplinary activities.

 Our Centre for Educational Research and Innovation was set up in 2008.  It has established good reputation for pioneering educational research, opening up new fields for exploration and combining rigorous analysis with conceptual innovation. The centre is headed by a very dynamic director Dr. Vasundhara Padmanabhan and experienced research oriented experts are available   for leading the budding researchers. At present the in take capacity of the centre is 10 Ph.D. students. The efforts are on to increase the number in the nearest future.

 Who does the centre work with? 

Our centre works synergistically with the sister institutions of Somaiya Vidyavihar. We design small workshops on research methodology for the teachers of the campus. We also conduct research methodology courses for the researchers of the campus and out side the campus.   We draw extensively on expert knowledge from the eminent faculty of Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education. We have been developing links with educational and other research associations as well.
