The group will encourage collaborative projects between researchers in Ireland as well as on a Global North-South basis as well as developing a dialogue with practitioners.

It is hoped that special seminars will be arranged from time to time and that the DSA Ireland Annual Conference will include sessions devoted to education research reports. 

The study group is currently being organised by:

Prof. Linda Clarke, School of Education, University of Ulster

Prof. Paul Conway, Education Professional Studies, University of Limerick

Prof. Sean Farren (Convenor), DSA Ireland Chair
