At the nexus of learning and innovation

Ambitious “Growing mind” project funded in Finland

Congratulations to our Finnish colleagues, Professor Kai Hakkarainen and his team, who have been awarded a strategic grant for the project “Growing mind: Educational transformations for facilitating sustainable personal, social, and institutional renewal at the digital age”.

This five year multimillion-dollar project is a part of the Strategic Research Programme of the Academy of Finland “Keys to Sustainable Growth”.

I have just commenced my PhD candidature with the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation after being completely hooked on Learning Sciences and Technology through the course of my Masters (MLS&T).

What motivates your research?
