The LSRI is dedicated to the support of multidisciplinary research on learning and teaching, and the development and evaluation of learning environments. Our research is grounded in a commitment to active engagement and collaboration with schools, community organizations, informal learning environments, and higher education institutions. Faculty in LSRI are advancing research in the field by exploring issues of data visualizations, teacher learning, large-scale organizational change, human-computer interaction, language learning, and diversity and equitable participation in STEM learning. Faculty in LSRI conduct research and design activities that are deeply rooted in authentic practices, leverage theories and methods from multiple research traditions, and address issues and challenges that learners face in diverse contexts. LSRI’s funded research and development projects encompass the content areas of mathematics, science, history, social studies, language arts and literatures, and assessment and span grade levels K-16+.
