What is the problem?
Education enables upward socioeconomic mobility and is a key to escaping poverty and reducing inequality. Despite its importance, ensuring quality education for all remains an issue. Furthermore, learning and educational trajectories are complex, influenced by numerous mechanisms, processes and consequences of human decision-making.
What do we do?
Through our interdisciplinary decision science research, we explore the decision-making involved in education and learning, including understanding the behaviours and choices of students and educators. Furthermore, we advise how to incorporate decision science research into educational practice, systems and policy in order to improve educational outcomes and to work towards the goal of inclusive and equitable education for all.
What are our aims?
At the Radboud Center for Decision Science, experts are brought together 1) to investigate the decisions involved in education and learning and 2) to explore how insights can be used in educational policy and practise to ensure quality education for all.
