Learning and Instruction
The division Learning and Instruction focuses on on questions regarding learning and teaching processes and their effects. Examples include interactions between teachers and students, collaborative learning, e-didactics, formative action, adaptive teaching, motivational teaching, student motivation and student well-being. These issues are not only viewed from the educational discipline, but also from recent insights from related disciplines, such as social and cultural psychology, organizational psychology, and neuropsychology. The division was founded in 1992 and has more than 120 members
The Learning and Instruction division organizes activities twice a year. A relevant and topical issue is central to each activity. The core of the activities is sharing knowledge, visions and experiences, and discussing them critically and creatively. Experts from the Netherlands and abroad are invited to introduce a theme. We are happy to talk to researchers, teachers, students, managers, administrators, educational developers, educational support staff, policy makers and advisers.
Amongst others, the division performs the following activities:
- The organisation of the Division’s theme during the annual Education Research Days
- The organising of symposia, forum discussions or workshops
The activities of the division can be followed on LinkedIn
The division activities are organized by board members and members. We like to collaborate with other divisions, ICO, and other organizations in the field. The board invites members with ideas to contact one of the board members.
