Announcing ISLS NAPLES, a new network of study programs in the Learning Sciences
The Network of Academic Programs in the Learning Sciences (NAPLES) is a network of Ph.D. and Master’s Programs.
For the programs, NAPLES increases international visibility and opportunities for international collaborations with other Learning Sciences sites.
For scholars NAPLES supports the exchange of ideas in teaching and research. Currently the network is establishing a website with a well organized resource collection of texts, videos and learning activities for the design of introductory courses into the Learning Sciences. On the website scholars will also be able to explore the curricula and a collection of syllabi from other programs.
For students, NAPLES helps building up an international network and benefiting from specific expertise in other programs as well as from visiting scholar opportunities and possible international supervision of their research.
As of March 2013, 19 universities with 30 different programs have joined NAPLES.
More information can be found on the preliminary website at naples.isls.org.
