Research at MUSEC
Macquarie University Special Education Centre (MUSEC) provides a unique environment where some of Australia's leading scholars conduct research and development in special education.
Current research projects have been initiated with the aim of providing effective empirically-based solutions to contemporary problems in special education. MUSEC researchers have continually asked how educational 'best practices' for children with special needs can be made more efficient, better supported, more strategic and thus easier to implement.
Research productivity is evidenced by the quality and quantity of research publications generated each year and MUSEC staff have a strong record of attracting competitive grants and consultancies. The wide range of staff research interests provides exceptional opportunity for the involvement of higher degree research students.
The active dissemination of research findings to other researchers, policy makers and practitioners has resulted in MUSEC consistently meeting one of the greatest challenges of any educational research organization, that of substantially influencing special education practice at local, national and international level.
