The LETStudio is a strategic initiative for promoting interdisciplinary research within the Learning Sciences at The University of Gothenburg. It addresses issues of knowledge, learning, communication and expertise in contemporary society. In particular, we aim to both explore and further enable creative re-enactments of knowledge and learning through the introduction of new media technologies. How does scientific knowledge gain new currency in professional, public and private life through its growing association with media technologies? What does this imply for the future of expert-lay relations, the saliency of new citizen science practices and the nature of experimentation in relation to technologically and scientifically complex issues?
Both responding and engaging with current transformations of knowledge and learning, the LETStudio research initiative seeks to attract and assemble skills and competences from a broad range of disciplines and fields of professional endeavour.
Knowledge in Transformation: Instruction, Interaction and Materiality
The knowledgeable citizen: Expert-laymen communication and participatory practices in a scientific and technological society
Young citizens: Literacy and participation in new media ecologies
