Eric Klopfer to Co-Host Learning Sciences on Online Learning Symposium

16 May Eric Klopfer to Co-Host Learning Sciences on Online Learning Symposium

Eric Klopfer and MIT Office of Digital Learning’s Vijay Kumar will host Learning Sciences and Online Learning, a two-day symposium on May 21-22, 2015.

The increasing interest and engagement in digital and online learning suggest an urgency to examine the intersection of learning sciences, education research, and digital learning practice. The symposium brings together a group of practitioners and educational researchers to share their perspectives and to collectively address the synergistic opportunities in this intersection, with a view to designing better learning experiences and to inform the agenda for future educational research.

 

In particular, the symposium will focus on how online learning might help meet the persistent challenges that discipline-based educational researchers have identified in teaching within their disciplines.
