“Where else but SESP could I have access to such an incredible array of top-notch opportunities and experts in their fields, all under one umbrella? Without this diversity of voices and support, it would have been incredibly hard to put together my research.”

“Learning sciences is unique in that our research is active and dynamic. Traditionally in education, you develop an intervention, put it into place, and don’t touch it. We take a different approach. If something isn’t working, we’ll talk with the participants, change it, study the change, and revise again. It’s the creative, collaborative dimension to learning sciences that makes it exciting.”

Why Learning Sciences Matters “Out-of-school learning will become increasingly important in the coming decades as workers can now expect to pursue more than one career and change jobs many times over their lifetimes. Accordingly, we need to prepare college graduates who can serve as leaders in helping to design innovative environments that effectively nurture and support learning both in school and in many different informal contexts including after-school programs, museums, community centers, online environments and workplaces.”
