The International Society of the Learning Sciences is a professional society dedicated to the interdisciplinary empirical investigation of learning as it exists in real-world settings and to how learning may be facilitated both with and without technology.

The society is widely interdisciplinary and includes members from cognitive science, educational psychology, computer science, anthropology, sociology, information sciences, neurosciences, education, design studies, instructional design, and other fields. Currently the society includes members from six continents and provides unprecedented opportunities for collegial interaction across national boundaries in this field.

ISLS sponsors: Two journals — the Journal of the Learning Sciences (JLS) and the International Journal of Computer Support for Collaborative Learning (ijCSCL), and two conference series — the International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS) and the International Conference on Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL).
