Looks like the field of the Learning Sciences is about to get its first handbook, to be released in April 2006 by Cambridge University Press. The book provides an overview of LS-inspired learning environments, organized by key areas of the field, and includes entries from many of the today’s most eminent learning scientists.
Learning Sciences is an 15 year-old interdisciplinary field that studies teaching and learning and engages in the design and implementation of innovative learning environments. The field gave rise to Inquirium (all of us here at Inquirium got our PhDs from Northwestern’s LS program) and has spawned a host of academic programs, departments, and research institutes. The field has its own society, the International Society of the Learning Sciences, and a journal, The Journal of the Learning Sciences.
