    International Handbook of the Learning Sciences

    Our scholars have contributed to the recently published International Handbook of the Learning Sciences MoreClose

    As a pioneering collection in the international field of the learning sciences, the International Handbook of the Learning Sciences involved contributions from more than 100 prominent scholars from 17 countries in four continents. In an interdisciplinary field, the book consists of more than 50 chapters and provides a compendium of past, current, and emerging theoretical and empirical directions for learning sciences research.

    The book captures the research work of Faculty scholars. The chapters: “Knowledge Building: Theory, Design, and Analysis”, authored by Professor Carol Chan and Dr Jan van Aalst, and “Interactional Ethnography” authored by Dr Susan Bridges, and Professor Judith Green of the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA, are included in the handbook. Professor Nancy Law was a reviewer for the book.

    Professor Law, in her review, commented, “The book captures theoretical advances beyond the established perspectives to address learning at the neural, institutional, and network levels. The wide-ranging innovations in learning environments and research methods make it a valuable resource for established scholars, early-career researchers, and educators interested in research-informed policy and/or practice.”

    The Faculty is proud to contribute to this definitive volume of international learning sciences scholarship and we are committed to maintain high academic and research standards in the field.
