Our research expertise

Our researchers explore how and why people learn at every stage of life, from babies to the very old.

They conduct research in nurseries, schools, colleges and universities, but also in multiple informal contexts: in the home, at work, in nature, in the community, in arts and leisure and in volunteering and activism.
