Educational Psychology

The Educational Psychology Research Group is comprised researchers who use psychological theory and perspectives to understand and positively influence educational phenomena at all ages and stages of education. Our interests focus on the following areas:

  • Learner subjectivity, self-beliefs, and engagement
  • Creating motivationally intelligent classrooms
  • The role of academic emotions in learning and achievement
  • Supporting learners’ emotional development (as a precursor to self-regulation of learning?)
  • Gender and socio-economic deprivation barriers to educational participation (or Supporting under-represented groups to participate in education?)
  • Well-being and mental health in education
  • Test/exam anxiety assessment and intervention

Members of our group are active in local, national, and international networks. Putwain is Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Educational Psychology, Malone and Wood are Deputy Editors for Education 3-13, Peiser is on the editorial board for the TEAN journal
