NordLearn - Nordic Centre for Research on Learning and Media
The field of learning research is to be understood as a multi- and interdisciplinary area, including a range of disciplines, such as education, psychology, media studies, and technology.
Four research centres are involved in the network:
- The multidisciplinary LinCS group from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. LinCS is a national Centre of Excellence in learning research in Sweden
- Intermedia, University of Oslo, Norway. Intermedia is the strongest research unit in Norway for the study of the intersection between learning and digital technology.
- The Centre of Educational Technology (CET) from Tallinn University, Estonia. CET is the leading research institution in the field of eLearning in Estonia and is well-established internationally.
- The Centre of Learning Research from the University of Turku, Finland. The Centre is one of the biggest and internationally most well-known research units in the Nordic countries.
These units cooperate on a regular basis. An estimated 70 to 80 doctoral students are continuously trained in these groups, and coordinating courses and supervision is expected to increase the efficiency and lead to a richer environment for research and training.
