PCPR focuses on what Bernstein called the pedagogic relay, examining macro and micro relations between educational policy and practice, conditions and materialities of pedagogic governance, intersectionalities and socialisation within and between sites, agents and actors, curriculum decision-making and pedagogic enactment. Empirical sites in which this research group work include high poverty schools, rural/ remote and Indigenous communities, physical education and sport coaching contexts, and health and education government departments, focusing on key research issues of wellbeing, social and emotional learning, literacies and academic outcomes for diverse learners.
