Institute for Education, Teaching and Leadership (IETL)
This Institute is concerned with all levels of education and all forms of research and knowledge exchange to inform and enhance teacher education, education policy and educational leadership and management.
The Institute therefore develops, delivers and disseminates programmes and projects from initial teacher education through to leadership and management in all sectors of education and at all levels ranging from the local to the international.
The Institute was formed in August 2010 from the Department of Curriculum Research and Development and the Department of Educational Studies.
Our Institute provides specialist expertise in a range of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including routes to become a qualified teacher, work in the outdoors, and in education leadership and management.
Many staff in our Institute for Education, Teaching and Leadership (IETL) have previously held senior leadership and management positions in schools, colleges and universities, and in third sector organisations involved in education.
The Outdoor and Environmental Education unit of Moray House School of Education and Sport is a world-class institution dedicated to the research, teaching, and promotion of outdoor, environmental, and sustainability education.
