The CIP&T investigates learning and teaching in specific subject domains, esp. in mathematics. Emphasis is put on the role of cognitive, metacognitive as well as affective variables in the teaching/learning process. This research takes place in ecologically valid settings and uses a diversity of quantitative and qualitative methods, including design experiments aimed at the construction and validation of powerful learning environments. In the development and validation of these learning environments, the role of ICT receives special attention.
