The Institute of Technological and Educational Research

Professor Edwin Jones, CD, JP

The Institute of Technological and Educational Research (ITER) emerged in 2010 to help displace obstacles and challenges impeding capacity to build a sustainable research culture at the Mico. As such, the Institute is tasked to make staff and students more research active. It serves as a medium through which we respond to the broad education-related problems and needs of society beyond the constraints in which the academic departments function. ITER functions as a team-centred, problem solving vehicle to encourage and drive interdisciplinary

interactions and research. Additionally, ITER aligns its mission to that of the Mico University College and its Graduate School, in complementary relationships to advance excellence in a range of higher education disciplines, through research, teaching, mentoring, critical pedagogy and reflection.

All these considerations awaken the need for ITER to forge strong, sustainable internal and external partnerships that help to advance our institutional goals. As a very young institution, ITER is primarily committed to generating radically different research products in theoretical and applied policy studies that help to solve educational problems and change the social landscape. We have nothing to lose in promoting and taking risks with methodologies and ideas that promise meaningful transformation.
