Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research (WMIER)
The Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research (WMIER) was established by the University to undertake, support and disseminate research relating to the broad field of education. The Institute encourages a variety of research in education spanning the years of early childhood and schooling and which may be subject-specific or cross-curricular involving interdisciplinary research teams. The focus is research on learning, teaching, curriculum, cultural and literacy issues and policy. Local studies in classroom research, policy, critiques and reviews are encouraged, as are studies from national and international perspectives. Conferences and seminars are organised by the Institute to inform the academic and professional communities of research undertaken, and to promote sharing and debate. National and international researchers are encouraged to visit the Institute and collaborate with staff and students in the University of Waikato.
