There are several strong research environments at the department, which together pursue research into learning, communication and identity and knowledge formation. A recurring theme is the role of the media in these processes. The studies are carried out in institutional, professional and everyday settings and cover all ages from young children to adults.
The department pursues research into learning and media in everyday and institutional settings. Much of the research is of a practical nature and is relevant to nurseries, schools, after-school clubs, higher education and other professional organisations. There is a particular focus on new arenas for communication and learning, such as the internet and digital technology. Other important research areas include learning and teaching in the lower age groups, and children’s and young people’s everyday life and leisure time.
