Centre for Education Innovation and Action Research

About Us


The Centre for Education, Innovation and Action Research (CEIAR) is an independent research centre at TISS Mumbai, established in February 2015 to engage with and promote innovation in the school curriculum, teacher education and higher education curriculum and pedagogy. The Centre provides incubation and promotion of innovations that address the needs of Indian education and engages with innovative use of new technologies and media to raise relevance, quality and standards of education. Towards this, the Centre collaborates and engages with research, development, teaching and field action.

The Centre’s flagship programme the Connected Learning Initiative (CLIx.tiss.edu) was awarded the UNESCO-King Hamad Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education -2017. (http://clix.tiss.edu).

Since 2019 a new Centre of Excellence in Teacher Education is under development with support from the Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT: 2019-2020) and with TATA TRUSTS. This initiative proposes to engage with teaching, research, policy advocacy and collaboration to revitalise the sector of teacher education in India.
