A glimpse into our Research


Social, Educational and Cognitive sciences

In our department, cognitive scientists focus on fundamental functions, trying to understand the mechanisms of human learning while educational sociologists adopt broader view to relate individual learners to society. They work closely with Educational scientists who apply and develop theories to understand processes of learning and teaching.
