UIC Launches Learning Sciences Research Institute

The Learning Sciences Initiative at the University of Illinois at Chicago took another step forward this week with the formation of the Learning Sciences Research Institute. The institute replaces the Institute for Mathematics and Science Education (IMSE) and now encompasses three initiatives:

LSRI’s co-directors are Jim Pellegrino & Susan Goldman. According to the announcement:

This change in title represents a broadening of the scope of the Institute beyond mathematics and science to encompass additional disciplines, such as literacy and social studies. In addition to the research and development efforts already established at IMSE, LSRI will take on a wider scope of work that encompasses the social, cultural, and environmental contexts of teaching and learning across different learners and different disciplines.
