The Victorian Deaf Education Institute partners with various
tertiary institutes to conduct specialist research. The aim is
to provide a strong evidence base for best practice models for
teaching and learning in this specialist area. Supporting the link between
research and practice ensures that VDEI remains at the forefront of innovative
thinking and practice.
VDEI manages and leverages grant applications and research scholarships. It
also conducts informal research to determine the research needs of the sector by
collating and reviewing industry publications; the use of surveys; feedback from
stakeholders, teachers, families and students; academic recommendations and
coordinating the participation of deaf educators in research.
