Learning, Culture and Interventions (LECI) is an expert group devoted to advancing high-quality research, and research-based teaching and societal interaction at the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Helsinki. It offers a conceptual home to all those academics at the faculty whose research rests on socio-cultural and /or activity theoretical perspectives, with a specific interest on reciprocal interaction between theory and practice. The photo above depicts the view from our campus: Hakaniemi district of Helsinki, a former workers' area. This is not accidental picture: we want to stress the metaphor of University looking outside to the world, openness and collaboration.
