Learning, Technology and Assessment Research Group

This research group examines creative and transformational approaches to learning and teaching through the use of educational media and technology across all disciplines. We apply our work to schools, higher education and industry to provide informed and practically relevant approaches to learning that result in meaningful outcomes for all learners. We examine the role of creativity in transforming learning, the robust design of valid assessments and the role of identity and embodied learning in online spaces. We focus our work on broad aspects of learning, technology and assessment, including the design and evaluation of educational media such as texts, augmented and virtual reality, videos and games and the role of embodiment in learning through a strong theoretical lens.

The LTA research group membership is run through the School of Education and welcomes members from any Faculty or Discipline at the University of Adelaide.
