Since 1 April 2008, the Office of Education Research (OER) has led efforts to spearhead programmes grounded in the principles of advancing research, development and innovation at NIE. OER is committed to providing the resources and support systems – through the governance, monitoring, quality assurance and dissemination of education research – that will produce high-quality education research with impact on policy and practice.
OER is dedicated to serving faculty interests by providing grant opportunities to faculty members. It administers the Education Research Funding Programme (ERFP), a pool of research funds supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore.
NIE’s research is guided by the Research and Development Framework – a policy-driven, evidence-based framework that guides academic and research staff to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Singapore schools and to build on NIE's standing as a leading international research institution.
Through the ER3.0 programme – a research framework for the third tranche of funding – OER aims to enhance Academic Group–Research Centre (AG-RC) collaborations and develop NIE’s education research capacity through the synthesis of research findings from projects in different disciplines, as well as develop scalable pedagogical interventions to enable systemic improvements in the education system.Follow us on:
