Innovation In Teaching

Research that helps educational professional excel

WPI faculty are conducting world-renowned research in learning science and technology. Working with in-service educators and their classrooms, they seek to revolutionize the nation’s educational system, supporting effective and engaged learning on a broad scale.

Our faculty are leaders in educational data mining, human-computer interaction, and educational assessment. They strive to understand how students respond to educational software and develop models for discovery about human learning and cognition. Research emphasizes real world connections and explores strategies for getting students excited about learning, particularly in the STEM subjects.

In-service educators and their students are an important part of these efforts, as faculty seek information on effective learning environments, student response, quick and easy teacher feedback systems, and more. We look to local educators to help us test research in its early stages, using their experiences and insights to create products that are later used by educators everywhere.
