NAPLeS Syllabi

On this page you can find and download a collection of syllabi that were submitted by different existing Learning Sciences programs. We have arranged the syllabi into five different main themes:

  1. Foundations of the Learning Sciences
  2. How People Learn
  3. Supporting Learning
  4. Methodologies for the Learning Sciences
  5. Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning

Keywords may help you to find the syllabi you are interested in.
