Dr. Diana Laurillard is Chair of Learning with Digital Technologies at the Institute of Education at the University of London. Her research interests include theory-based design of learning and teaching methods and resources, students’ conceptions and misconceptions, students’ approaches to learning, and flexible learning activity design tools for teachers. She is author of the widely-acclaimed book "Rethinking University Teaching A Conversational Framework for the Effective Use of Learning Technologies" You can find more information about Dr. Laurillard by clicking here.

His research interests include the examination of the design and classroom use of innovations that enhance learning of complex and conceptually difficult ideas in mathematics and science. Through cognitive science-based research on the "Envisioning Machine" and later "SimCalc," he has explored how computer-based representations can make the mathematics of change and the related physics of motion accessible to many more students.
