Support for early career teachers
How can we provide better support for early career teachers? What kind of support are teachers currently receiving? What role can and should online communities play in teacher support?

Understanding creativity in design
How do designers change their conception of what they are doing whilst they are designing? How can computer models navigate their own knowledge about the world in a way that is inspired by what we see in human creativity?
