About the group
We study how digital media, technologies and representations become resources for participation, collaboration and learning in different practices in today’s knowledge society.
Our members use a variety of methodological approaches to study learning and participation, such as ethnography, ethnomethodology, interaction analysis, virtual ethnography, learning analytics, social network analysis, and mixed methods.
LiDA researchers also have extensive experience with design-based research (DBR) and research-practice partnership (RPP) approaches that emphasize the societal relevance of research and the development of innovative practices in educational institutions.
