The Learning Sciences Graduate Student Conference (LSGSC) is a convening for emerging voices in the learning sciences and related fields to (1) engage with and iterate on work that focuses on studying and designing for learning, and (2) build community across campuses and among graduate students and faculty. For our 2019 conference, we are doubling our efforts to invite participants from the broader range of programs, departments, and fields that study learning—including, but not limited to, cognitive science and computer science; communication studies and curriculum and instruction; human development and human-computer interaction; linguistics and Latinx studies; philosophy, policy, and physics. We are especially interested in works-in-progress and first-time presenters. Each year, students share work in its various stages of completion, including conjectured designs, theoretical frameworks, preliminary findings, and manuscripts being prepared for submission. We hope you will join us!
The fourth annual conference will be hosted by School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22.
A set of pre-conference workshops will be held on Friday, September 20.
