Subtheme 3: Building Tools and Theory for Learning across Levels

This emerging theme in Learning Sciences research recognizes the nature of education and learning as nested, interdependent and multilevel complex phenomena, and that unless research on learning takes account of and addresses the ecological complexities involved, the impact of our research on learning, and indeed our understanding of learning, would be severely limited.

Two dimensions of work in this subtheme are relatively promising given our current strengths:

  • Building hierarchical, complex system models of learning in a specific domain of learning.
  • Building models of successful strategic and policy interventions for large scale learning improvement.
