Research on Teaching and Learning
With its graduate program in learning sciences and technologies, WPI aims to revolutionize the nation’s education system to support significantly more effective and engaged learning in mathematics and science on a broad scale. It’s an essential transformation for the United States to remain competitive on the global stage.
The WPI learning sciences and technologies program receives steady streams of major public funding, national recognition, and a growing international reputation for its innovations in intelligent tutoring systems that combine technology-based learning and assessment.
At WPI you will find the undisputed leaders in educational data mining whose research seeks to understand how students respond to educational software, and how these responses impact their learning. Research is underway to develop models for discovery about human learning and learners, and about their cognition, meta-cognition, motivation, and affect.
We look for educators interested in improving learning in their classroom to partner with us on teaching and learning research. Contact the STEM Education Center to discover the opportunities, firstname.lastname@example.org.
