Our vision is to achieve excellence in the study of learning through innovative, inter-disciplinary research conducted locally and globally, in formal and informal contexts and across the life span.
Through understanding the dynamics in societies better, and how these shape outcomes for individuals and social groups, we are in a position to transform lives and societies.
We see all learning as arising out of meaningful, situated, processes that in many cases are centred on bodies of disciplinary knowledge, such as in science and mathematics, or music and geography.
We examine the lives of people who are involved in learning; from the teaching practitioner to the student, parent and the professional.
World leaders in applied advanced quantitative research methodologies, spanning the social and natural sciences.
