Theories are formulated to explain, predict, and understand phenomena and, in many cases, to challenge and extend existing knowledge within the limits of critical bounding assumptions. In social sciences, theories are typically taught as part of modules or utilised in research dissertations. Still despite the opportunities that students have to engage with theories, their exposure is relatively narrow and confined to widely-used theories.
Following experiences of teaching/supervision and interaction with PGR and PGT students, this project's aim is to create an online TheoryHub that covers a wide range of theories and act as a starting point for theory exploration in different research and T&L contexts.
