Assessing formal and informal education, from early childhood through retirement
At different stages of life, people require different approaches to learning to fulfill their goals. To achieve the best outcomes, educators must match the right instructional variables to each student.
WSU researchers identify those variables. They seek to explain learning principles. Then they put their knowledge into practice, developing instructional methods that respond to cultural, linguistic, and other individual differences. Scholars also investigate the effectiveness of interventions, such as technology or specific instructional practices.
Their innovations help you, the lifelong learner, reap more value from every lesson.
