The knowledge area technology and learning focuses on the development of technological competence, digitisation, automation, robotisation, simulation and relationships between technology and learning in different professions, and the implications this has for vocational training in upper secondary school and for vocational teacher education.

The knowledge area technology and learning focuses on the development of technological competence, digitalisation, learning in different professions, and what implications this has for vocational training in upper secondary school and for vocational teacher education.
 
Research on the development of learning technologies, changes in learning processes and the role of teachers, as well as online support teaching and guidance in teacher education are also very relevant topics.
 
An overall research approach for Technology in Work and Learning (TAL) will be vocational knowledge and learning cultures in the face of technology and digitalisation. This approach connects technically oriented research on the one hand and humanities / social science research on the other. This constitutes an important field of knowledge and foundation for meeting and tackling the many challenges that the new working life presents us with.
 
TAL's input / approach can be based on the "technically oriented" research (based on technology, such as VR, AR, simulators, 3D printing and so on), and at the same time relate to and use humanities / social science perspectives, as it is learning in a broad sense which is the theme.
 
Some current research questions may be:

Naisbitt defines megatrends as major, social, economic, political and technological changes that take place slowly but surely, and which, once they have taken root, affect us for at least a decade. Some upcoming global megatrends that will have an impact on the research group's area of interest could be:
