Learning, Communication and IT

The division is multidisciplinary and consists of researchers from pedagogy, computer science, linguistics, informatics, and applied IT, jointly exploring the possibilities and consequences of IT in education, learning and knowing.

The division works with questions concerning how IT changes the conditions for and creates opportunities for learning and communication in different contexts such as school, work life and leisure.

Our research includes a broad range of research objects, theoretical perspectives and methods. We conduct a variety of design research and analytical studies of empirical conditions. The division aims for excellence in research and education within the field of Learning, Communication and IT.

The division is part of both national and international networks, including the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS) and the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI).

The division is also an active party in two of the University of Gothenburg's strategic research initiatives: the Gothenburg group and LETStudio. There is also a close collaboration with the research environment LINA at University West.
