Learning Sciences and Technologies

Academic Group

  • “Learning Sciences and Technologies" is an interdisciplinary academic group which focuses on understanding learning in social-cultural contexts with the goal of designing and integrating learning environments and technologies.

    The group is concerned with the relationships of theory to practice and adopts a variety of methodologies, including reflection-in-action, action research, and design experiments for the advancement of its research and teaching. We seek to provide a bridge between learning and instructional design, and to mediate the design process as both a science and an art.

    Our mission is to enable teachers to become designers for learning and teaching and active contributors in a reflective community of practice.
