PhD Students

The Institute brings together academics, researchers and students who recognise the importance of developing interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the complex processes involved in human learning. The Learning Science Research Centre is a partner research centre at our China campus, under the direction of Dr Don Peterson. The two institutes are carrying out a joint programme of research into cross-cultural learning and the design of new technologies for distance learning and knowledge sharing.

Below is a list of the students undertaking doctoral study at the LSRI.
