Conducting research is just the first of many steps
The University of Delaware’s College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) is committed to contributing to a robust continuum between research and practice. We emphasize the interaction between theory, research and practice in all of our work. Education and human development research produces knowledge to inform practice, but research must also be informed by the issues, needs and concerns of practitioners.
We believe the most promising innovations come from interdisciplinary perspectives and want to ensure that the next generation of scholars benefits from interdisciplinary learning. Moving beyond the typical academic research silos, our CEHD faculty work with each other and with faculty across the university in health, arts and sciences, information and computer sciences, public policy, sociology, psychology, and many other areas to address critical issues in education and human development.
Listed below are noteworthy publications by our faculty, featuring their ongoing efforts to advance knowledge and discover solutions to the social challenges we face.
