About the conference theme:
The fast paced changes in the workplace, including within education, are altering what we need to learn and how we need to teach it. This situation makes the learning sciences even more important. Learning science can lead the way in helping researchers and practitioners to: unpack the complexity of the learning and teaching process, explore learning in real-world settings, and understand how learning may be facilitated both with and without technology. The theory and methods of the Learning Sciences, along with their substantial body of empirical evidence put the Learning Sciences in a unique position to offer guidance and insight to wide body of educational stakeholders. We welcome papers that aim to improve our understanding of learning, the impact of the modern world on learning and alternative views of learning. We also encourage papers that build on interdisciplinary research, as well as papers that help to set the programmatic agenda for the future of learning sciences research.

In particular, for ICLS 2018 we are also looking for papers that illustrate how the learning sciences can impact upon the work of the two co-located conferences that are being brought together as part of the Festival of Learning: AIED and Learning@Scale, as well as upon the development of commercial educational technology.

Keynote Speakers:

[h Green]Judith Green Professor Emeritus of Education at the University of California, Santa Barbara

[abak]Iris Tabak, Professor of Education, The Department Of Education, Ben-Gurion University

Dr. Iris Tabak is interested in the ways in which complex reasoning is mediated through material tools and social interactions. She engages in empirical (mixed-method) study of reasoning in naturalistic and laboratory settings. Recently, she has been interested in evidence-based reasoning in health care among both professionals and lay people. She also designs and studies the use of learning technologies, and has been part of the CoReflect project, and the BGuILE project, where she developed The Galapagos Finches software. In addition to empirical and design research, Tabak is interested in the advancement of research methods, and in theoretical conceptualization, and was part of the Spencer Foundation Advanced Studies Institute on Design-based Research Methods, and has written about the conceptualization of distributed scaffolding and of context.
