In this podcast, Dr. Larry Gruppen explains why the Learning Environment is such an enduring subject of study. Everyone wants to improve it – but defining it and discovering what variables really influence its quality has been elusive.  He shares his ideas about how to construct a research agenda that might lead to a better understanding of the learning environment and gives advice on how to get started researching this fascinating and important topic.
