The Learning with New Media Research Group (previously named Centre for Educational Multimedia) includes multi-disciplinary researchers with a common understanding that the relationship of educational technology to teaching, learning and being is far more complex than that of a simple tool. LNMRG is unique because it brings together researchers from across disciplines within Education, and from other faculties and universities.
LNMRG (as CEMM) was established to investigate new technologies and new ways to teach and learn. The group boldly plunged into Virtual Reality and simulation research in the early 90s and now pioneers new pedagogies in 21st century contexts such as Web 2.0 and Web 3D.
