Learning in an open, connected world and at scale

We lead the world in research on Open Education and the opportunities it offers for learners. Open Education, supported by the transition to digital content and the impact of a pervasive network, has the potential to bring about real changes in the ways we share knowledge and interact.

We are working to expand existing approaches to knowledge construction, citizenship models and theories of identity so we can better exploit the opportunities offered by an open, connected world. We are considering the way that open forms of education achieve scale and bring benefits to learners, teachers and organisations and how learning can take place through diverse media in a wide range of social, cultural and disciplinary settings.
