Neurodiversity and Learning
Research Project

Inclusive education relies on understanding what effective engagement with learning means for each individual. This research project at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education is using a new self-report measure of engagement with learning activities. The new quick, easy, flexible and intuitive research tool will help transform our understanding of students’ experience of their learning activities and help support inclusive teaching and learning in universities, colleges and schools.

Understanding neurodiversity and engagement is at the heart of this project. The study is currently open to all UK undergraduate students to share their experiences of learning activities. We’re particularly interested in hearing from autistic students and those with ADHD or anxiety.
