Technology is constantly changing and so is the way we use it to learn. UCF’s Learning Sciences cluster not only develops new technology to improve learning outcomes but also explores how we interact with and learn using machines.

Unlocking the human potential within every learner will result in harnessing intellectual capital for solving society’s most challenging problems and saving billions of dollars.

This cluster focuses on how people learn across their lifespan in formal and informal settings and leverages theory, research and applied knowledge from the fields of education, educational psychology, learning sciences, cognitive psychology, human factors, computer science, engineering, learning analytics, Artificial Intelligence, philosophy and design.
