MEDIATE researchers study the mediating functions of new cultural tools (psychological, technological, semiotic) and their implications for knowledge building, identity development, and social interaction in formal and informal learning activities. Most of our research may be broadly organized in three complementary research themes. Explore selected publications and projects from each of the themes below.
A PhD position is available in subject area of learning analytics, a growing cross-disciplinary field of research and practice within educational technology combining learning sciences and informatics. The position will in a broad sense concern the relation between design of interactive technology and the meaningful analysis of user-generated data.
