Research and impact in social sciences education

Editors of this Issue

Andrea Szukala, University of Münster

Ian Davies, University of York, United Kingdom

Researchers explore and create knowledge, often with the intention (directly or indirectly) of facilitating change. In this edition of JSSE, we explore the interconnections between research and impact in social sciences education. The articles included in this edition emerge from work undertaken in 8 countries, across several age related phases of schooling and in professional development contexts. The authors explore the role of research illuminated through consideration of philosophical perspectives, power-dynamics in academic and political contexts and the nature of curricular and pedagogical innovation. There is reflection not only on the impact of educational interventions as revealed by research but also regarding the extent to which change may be achieved through research.
