About Future Learning Lab
21st. Century Learning, Knowledge, Skills and Media Literacy
FUTURE LEARNING LAB was established at the University of Agder in 2010. Our main goal then was to create a meeting arena where researchers across the range of university disciplines could meet to learn from each other on matters dealing with the digital transformation of education and learning. Our workshops and conferences have since then also catered to entrepreneurs, teachers and others who share our interest in the future of learning and how emergent digital media impacts upon it. Our second 5-year plan began in 2015 with an inaugural conference at Stanford University. Since 2016 our conferences have introduced world-leading speakers within a format of open collaboration and networking. By 2020 we engage in projects, workshops and speaking engagements internationally, continuing to forge our global community.
Local and national members
Future Learning Lab has about 12-15 national research members, depending on projects at any one given time. Our work is produced within the faculties of social science, humanist and pedagogy studies and the faculty of fine arts.
