Higher Education and Innovation Research Group
The Higher Education and Innovation Research Group (HEIR) was formed by the Centre for Higher Education Management (CHEM) in September 2015. The research group works in two main areas. One area is higher education research, with special focus on learning and teaching and organisational and management research. The other main area is innovation system research in education, including micro and macro level processes.
The research group works within the Institute of Education at the Faculty of Education and Psychology of ELTE. Its aim is intense cooperation and knowledge sharing with colleagues just as well as with the broader organisational environment of the Faculty. The research group is responsible for the Teacher education and higher education studies (EDiTE) doctoral program, the Master in Research and Innovation in Higher Education (MARIHE) Erasmus Mundus program and the higher education specialization of the Education MA program. In these programs innovative learning management methods are sought based on student-centeredness and supporting problem-based learning.
