Featured video - Making the meaning: The role of semiotics and education
Centre for Multimodal Research (CMR)
The Centre for Multimodal Research undertakes research and offers training courses and consultancy services in the following areas:
- representation and communication, including studies of the use of speech, gesture, image, typography and writing
- learning and assessment, including studies of language, science and medical education
- technology and new media, including studies of screen, tangible and mobile technologies and social media
- research methods, including visual, video and multimodal methods.
We explore these issues across different sites, including schools, museums, workplaces and online environments, using ethnographic, video-based, interactional, discourse-analytic and textual methods of analysis drawn from social semiotics, ethnomethodology, linguistics, museum studies, graphic design and other disciplines.
