Learning and Performance
Research Axis 1
The Learning and Performance axis integrates the perspectives of researchers focusing on subject matter specialties, special education, educational psychology, and neuroscience, in order to study key questions about how students learn and perform. Researchers study the processes and performances involved in the acquisition of both subject matter and cross-curricular competencies (e.g., self-regulation, reasoning, metacognition, critical thinking). These targeted competencies are studied in diverse contexts and from diverse standpoints.
