Organisation Profile

The goal of the Cognition, Learning, Instruction and Communication (CLIC) programme is to produce doctoral researchers with a good command of theory and research methods in programme areas. The programme has a multi- and interdisciplinary focus on human behavior. Among others, the programme welcomes doctoral researchers in the fields of Speech-Language Pathology (Logopedics), Individual differences in learning (Education, Educational Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Special Needs Education), Learning Difficulties (Special Needs Education) and Cognition and its brain dynamics (Cognitive Sciences).

The research conducted by doctoral researchers can concentrate on areas such as human development, neurocognitive functions and their development, individual differences in learning, learning difficulties, motivation, well-being, social interaction and cognition, language learning and bilingualism, communication, speech, language, voice and swallowing disorders.

Programme researchers can use, among others: experimental, correlational and observational methods, with designs including interventions, longitudinal studies, systematic reviews; and gathering data such as assessments, surveys, register data, physiology, behaviour and brain measurement. Participants in the doctoral researchers’ projects can include individuals from birth to adulthood and senior years.
