Promoting Staff Research Committee is expected "to promote and develop research among staff, create cross-departmental research opportunities, publish the Faculty journal (Malta Review of Educational Research), identify projects, also in collaboration with schools, where the input of the faculty’s research is required: “The Faculty also commits itself to its students and the UoM by establishing itself as a hub of innovative and creative educational research and practice, both at the local level and internationally” (from the FoE Vision and Mission Statement)".
