VPAL Research

The Office of the Vice Provost for Advances in Learning Research Group enables research on how students learn.

Under the faculty directorship of Dustin Tingley, a collaborative group of researchers from HarvardX, HILT, Bok and other efforts are working to advance the science of learning. 

While Harvard is truly re-imagining what is possible on-campus, there is a conscious effort to preserve the residential Harvard experience.

By using the online platform and residential classrooms to advance generalizable knowledge, Harvard is able to learn more about student learning and use the research findings to enhance the classroom educational experience.
