Wisdom and learning team


In this multidisciplinary team -which is first of its kind in Finland- adult wisdom is studied in its various manifestations. Scholars are from different scientific disciplines: university pedagogy, education, developmental psychology, philosophy,  history of education and information technology. There are also adult educators in the group. The core of the research and development is wisdom: how it is studied, how it is enhanced, taught and learned and which kind of educational phenomenon we refer as it is question of wise action, teaching and learning. 

Development of wisdom and learning is seen as life-long, complex phenomenon. The  approach is strongly philosophical-humanistic, but bases also  at empirical  studies.
