My main research interests are characteristics, causes, and measures concerning the learning difficulties that most students meet. Our empirical studies of casual connections points unambiguously to that the lack of key competencies among students to a large extent can be traced to insufficiencies in the learning environment offered to the students.

The educational system meets the difficulties by a too far-reaching reduction of complexity, e.g. by focussing rote memorisation of facts and algorithms, which is efficient in a short-term perspective in the sense that the students can solve several of the tasks but devastating in the long run since neither conceptual understanding nor problem solving abilities are developed. For more information, see J.Lithner. A research framework for creative and imitative reasoning.
