Learning Research

Our Learning Research experts are available to collaborate with you in your efforts to generate evidence of student learning and teaching effectiveness, deploy scholarly teaching approaches, or contribute to the body of knowledge on teaching and learning. With a goal of describing, explaining, predicting, and improving student learning, we focus on student-centered active learning across a range of modalities. We can work with you to measure improvement at all levels: learner, course, program, and institutional. 

The Learning Research team conducts and supports applied learning research on campus through the fields of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL), Discipline-Based Educational Research (DEBER), Learning Sciences, and Learning Analytics.  To reduce barriers for educational research on campus, the lab has an Institutional Umbrella IRB for low risk pedagogical studies.  We can also work with you on survey design, administration, analysis, and visualization; focus group and interview support; and learning analytics with data access, analysis, and visualization.


You can learn more about the Learning Research team’s areas of expertise and schedule consultations on the “Who We Are” section of our website. If you want to integrate learning research in your own classroom, we have developed resources to help you get started.
