Learning and Becoming in Practice: The International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) 2014

January 1st, 2014 | RESEARCH

The theme of ICLS 2014 is “Learning and Becoming in Practice.” By focusing on learning and becoming, we aim to foreground the ways that learning entails becoming a certain kind of person. By focusing on learning and becoming in practice, we aim to foreground the ways that learning processes are situated within different kinds of practices. Three kinds of practices encompass a range of contexts and processes in which people learn: by engaging in the epistemic practices of disciplines, by participating in sociocultural practices, and by engaging in design. Two additional practices we highlight pertain to how we organize our own work as learning scientists: the practices for analyzing and modeling learning across settings and time and the practices for designing for scale and sustainability.
