In 2012, the Australian Research Council (ARC) will fund a new research centre to investigate the complex issues of the human learning process. The centre will draw together cross-disciplinary researchers ranging from neuroscience and cognitive development to pedagogy and educational technology. Through the ARC’s Special Research Initiatives (SRI) scheme the Australian Government has committed funding of up to $4 million per year for a period of up to four years. The centre is a key recommendation of the Prime Minister’s Science, Engineering and Innovation Council Expert Working Group report, Transforming Learning and the Transmission of Knowledge (2009).
