ICLS 2008: International Perspectives on the Learning Sciences: Cre8ing a Learning World
This grant award allowed several UW-Madison researchers and graduate students to attend the 9th International Conference of the Learning Sciences at Utrecht University. They also participated in two pre-conference programs: a doctoral consortium and an early career workshop, designed to provide training and support for junior researchers in the Learning Sciences and to create international community among them.
The conference brought together an international community of scholars conducting research in academia, industry, K-12 education, corporate settings, and museums.
Participating UW-Madison education faculty participating included Sharon Derry, Sadhana Puntambekar, Constance Steinkuehler, Kurt Squire, and David Williamson Shaffer. Participating graduate students included Gina Navoa Svarovsky, David Hatfield, Elizabeth Bagley, Aran Nulty, and Padraig Nash.
