CICERO Learning is a network for distinguished researchers and research groups on learning. The researchers of the network are based in different universities and research institutes in Finland. The network builds co-operation with research groups and units around the world.
Currently CICERO Learning Network members are University of Helsinki, Aalto University, Aarhus University, Research Foundation for Studies and Education Otus, University of Eastern Finland, University of Lapland, University of Oulu, Stockholm University, University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University. CICERO Learning Network was established in 2006, and is coordinated by the University of Helsinki.
CICERO Learning network promotes cutting edge research on learning across the boundaries between diverse scientific fields. The network aims to nurture academic innovations and synergies among research communities, businesses and industry, for the benefit of the Finnish society in particular and global community in general.
Arts and Media Education
Enhancing learning through arts and media by reconsidering relationships between humans, arts and media education. Exploring how arts and media shape learning and participation.
Brain and Learning
Making neuroscience useful for the field of education. Enabling neuroscientists to tackle education-related research questions. Giving teachers, learners, and their parents information on the most recent neuroscientific findings in an understandable and exciting manner.
