The discipline of Education deals with the study of the teaching and learning, both from a pedagogical and sociological perspective. The Education Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Education scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Education is one of the broadest academic disciplines because the theory and practice of education encompasses the ways in which we acquire all other forms of knowledge. The breadth of education research makes it challenging for teachers and education researchers to keep up with current developments, not only within their own specialties but also in related fields. SSRN covers educational research and practice, from discipline-specific papers on education in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, to studies in educational psychology, educational organization, educational policy, teacher education, education and technology, and more.
