Head of Department: Keld Thorgård

The Department of Learning and Philosophy operates on an interdisciplinary, cross-faculty basis.

The mission of the Department is to do research, development and teaching in the areas of education, learning and philosophy, within the educational system as well as in public and private organisations.

The Department is present at two Campus areas of Aalborg University: Aalborg and Copenhagen.

We aim to strengthen the connections between research, development and professional practice, and enter into cooperation with public and private companies and educational institutions, in Denmark and worldwide. We have a close connection with universities in a.o. China, Colombia, Brazil and South Africa, as well as many European universities.

Our main research areas are

  • Pedagogical innovation and didactics
  • Organisational learning
  • Education and evaluation policy
  • Philosophy, ethics, anthropology and innovation

We offer BA, MA and PhD programmes within the same areas, as full time and part time studies.
