The Wallenberg Research Centre was founded by Carpe Vitam and University of Cambridge in November 1997. The centre’s task is to build bridges between research and practice, seek ways to evaluate different pedagogies and methods, and from this create more efficient systems for learning.
The goal is to create evaluation programs that teachers’ both can use for the individual pupil, and to connect to the evaluation programs of the traditional school. In the long term we hope to contribute to the development of all institutions for learning in Great Britain and Sweden.
At heart is our view of the family as the prime resource when it comes to children’s education. We also value recognise the importance of early learning for respect of each and everyone’s uniqueness and personality later in life, the disassociation of one “right” pedagogy, the will to include society and business life in education, and an openness always toreconsider views.
The work is lead by Professor John McBeath.
