Learning in a digitised society

Opportunities and challenges of our digitising world

The digitalisation of our world is increasingly shaping the ways of learning and interaction among people and communities.  This creates new challenges, and also opportunities, for our everyday life.  We seek to renew and further develop the opportunities of learning, active participation and learning environments, while tackling any challenges that may arise.

Our research has shed new light on the processes of successful pedagogical development work, on the renewal of teachers’ professionalism, and on the dynamics of interaction that promotes learning at all levels of the educational system. Our understanding of learner-centred and inspiring pedagogy, as well as of the meaningful use of rapidly evolving technologies for teaching and learning, is becoming increasingly precise. Our research provides tools for enhancing the professional skills of people working in the education sector, and we also help in the creation of innovative learning environments and increasingly personalised study paths.
