"When the object of critical inquiry is learning and learners, rather than merely teaching and teachers, an enormous potential opens for increasing learning through reducing the student's time spent on activities other than learning, lessening the aimless drift of students through prolonged undergraduate years, and challenging each student up to his or her learning potential."  (monograph by D. Bruce Johnstone)

The Learning Productivity Network was founded in 1995 at the State University of New York at Buffalo. D. Bruce Johnstone, former chancellor of the State University of New York and university professor of higher and comparative education, is the founder and director of the Network. A further explanation of Network activities can be found here. The Learning Productivity Network involves both research and policy initiatives. These include a quarterly newsletter, a national steering committee, an electronic discussion group, and several ongoing research projects.
