Transforming Learning, Empowering Learners
Home to innovative scholars from a wide range of disciplines in the learning sciences, the National Institute of Education Singapore is proud to host the 12th International Conference of the Learning Sciences, 2016.
Conference dates: 20 to 24 June 2016
Conference theme: Transforming Learning, Empowering Learners
The conference theme "Transforming Learning, Empowering Learners" brings our educational gaze back to the commitment of the learning sciences to provide a more insightful understanding of how people learn. This long-standing commitment extends our research focus to student learning and the design of pedagogical interventions and learning environments to enable our learners to acquire a kind of learning that empowers them to design their social futures as they participate in the competitive global economy.
Learning sciences research has sedulously ushered in evolving orthodoxy of assessment, pedagogy and designs of teaching and learning in diverse contexts. ICLS 2016 aims to bring together learning scientists to adjudicate various academic renditions of how people learn and institute further inquiry that encourages deep and probing examination of the nexus of instruction and learning as well as the roles of technology in educational practice.
