Research

ILETS provides an exciting opportunity to build upon and co-ordinate the University’s existing international reputation in the fields of interdisciplinary learning, education, technology and society. By bringing these activities together it creates a nexus of academic expertise to address its research aims, including:

  1. To research, innovate, develop and sustain learning, education, technology and society, with a coherent interdisciplinary focus, within the University of Glasgow, across Scotland and internationally;
  2. To undertake, and publish internationally, innovative funded research;
  3. To undertake critical and innovative policy analysis both nationally and internationally;
  4. To contribute to capacity building through courses and programmes of postgraduate, doctoral and postdoctoral work in these areas (taught and research-based);
  5. To explore, develop and record an evidence based approach to effective learning and teaching.

We have made significant progress towards these aims with major success in ESRC’s prestigious ‘Technology Enhanced Learning’ call. The project (‘Inter-Life: interoperability and transition’) will investigate the use of leading-edge three-dimensional online technologies to support skills development by young people to enhance their management of life transitions. The award is a major achievement for us, and will help us to attract further funding in this area. Research capacity has been significantly developed through PhD scholarships. For example, in obtaining funding from Glaxo Smith Kline to establish a three-year PhD studentship to investigate innovative health education work being developed by the Glasgow Science Centre.
