NIE Working Paper Series

NIEWP-Cover

The NIE Working Paper Series is intended as a means of regular communication between the mutually dependent spheres of theory and practice in education. Forward- and outward-looking, the Papers are conceptualized with a local issue at hand, and will survey international and local state of thought to assemble a principled response appropriate for our context. The intended audience for this publication are policymakers, school leaders and practitioners with an interest in how theoretical and empirical perspectives inform practice.

The Working Papers are published in a highly readable style, and appended with an expanded exposition and comprehensive reference for readers who want to know more.
