Visual Learning Lab



The Visual Learning Lab has been the focus for an amazing journey of innovation, experimentation, and sharing of exciting new possibilities in the area of teaching and learning in higher education. As one of a select number of CETLS, the VLL was awarded funding to build on the recognised achievements of the University of Nottingham in the field of Visual Learning. Its work has depended on multiple very productive collaborations, both within the University and much further afield tapping into international research expertise in this area. Many people and teams have contributed to those collaborations (listed below) and you can follow links to the left to find out more about the core team, the interns and PhD students.
