Learning in various forms permeates the entire university's activities, meaning learning is a strategically important research and innovation area for all those involved in education regardless of subject and level. Learning is also a central area of society at large. All social development depends to some extent on learning - withou it there is seldom any development.
The Learning Area is by nature both multidisciplinary and a project that requires a wide-ranging collaboration across the subject and institutional boundaries. This is already reflected in a project organization consisting of a project leader: Eva Alerby, Professor of Educational Sciences, KKL, and three area managers: Karolina Parding, Professor of Labor, ETS, Peter Parnes, Professor of Distributed Computer Systems, SRT, and Caroline Graeske, Deputy Professor of Swedish with didactic focus. The project group is also linked to an external reference group with representatives from Norrbotten municipalities, Unionen Norrbotten and Piteå municipality.
