Learning Sciences is a state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary area involving expertise in education, cognitive psychology, educational psychology, neuroscience, computer science and technology.  Learning Sciences explores understanding of human learning processes with scientific research methodologies, aiming to optimize instructional techniques and pedagogies in educational settings. The Centre for Learning Sciences (CLS) intends to contribute to the education community through knowledge transfer and technology development for the improvement of student learning environment. It is hoped that by partnership with schools and NGOs, we can provide support to teacher training, parent education and other community services.
Our Missions
