Learning and development in digitalized society

Our research involves studies of tools and models for computational thinking, investigating the role of digitalization in society, designing learning technology solutions, and enhancing computing education. Our research and development activities also strive for inventing digital solutions in order to tackle real-life challenges together with learners, teachers, companies, parents, and other stakeholders. An important part of our activities is the IMPDET doctoral study programme, which provides doctoral training related to the research interests of the group around the globe. We have also launched a doctoral training hub in collaboration with the College of Business Education (CBE) in Tanzania in order to improve the doctoral education in CBE, and improve the quality and impact of research carried out in the college.

We are a part of DIGS research community of UEF; https://www.uef.fi/en/research-community/learning-in-digitalized-society-digs
