Event Details

Mix a little psychology, sociology, computer science, and education together, sprinkle in a dash of cognitive science and anthropology, and what do you get?  That combination of disparate fields gives you learning science, an interdisciplinary subject that has resulted in new ideas, new methodologies, and new ways of thinking about learning. In this session, learning scientist Dr. Julia Huprich will share findings from this relatively nascent field that can help learning and development professionals strengthen their practice.  Participants will also be introduced to several valuable resources for their L&D toolkit.
