The Interdisciplinarity of the Learning Sciences

Learning is essential to the human experience. It stands to reason, then, that many academic disciplines, whether explicitly or tacitly, investigate or make assumptions about the nature of learning. The content of what people are learning has profound implications for our understanding of the nature of the process. In addition, the theories that we propose and the assumptions that we hold fundamentally shape the questions we ask, what we notice, and what we design for. Rather than seeing these differences as impediments to progress, the field of the Learning Sciences is enhanced when we build on these debates and disagreements in order to strengthen competing claims and transform these into designs that have significant impact on learning more broadly.

The learning sciences, as a field, has historically focused on interdisciplinarity — to center learning as a phenomenon and interrogate it with different lenses. For ICLS 2020, we seek to draw on and highlight the ways our understandings of learning can be deepened by revisiting the multiple ways of looking at learning, with an eye toward opening new conversations and enriching existing ones.
