Humans of Learning Sciences Podcast
What does it mean to be a learning scientist? What are the unique contributions of learning scientists to the problems we are trying to tackle as a society? How does one find their way to this field?
Humans of Learning Sciences aims to stimulate conversations within the field and beyond about the work of studying and promoting learning in a diversity of contexts. We aim to amplify the voices of diverse scholars (in academia, research, industry, and non-profit organizations) at various stages in their careers in order to showcase the range of methods, approaches, and trajectories that define the interdisciplinary field of learning sciences.
Each episode contains links of the discussed works, as well as a transcript, in the external episode descriptions.
The host and producer, Dr. Mon-Lin Monica Ko, holds a PhD in the learning sciences from Northwestern University. She is a research assistant professor at the Learning Sciences Research Institute at the University of Illinois of Chicago.
The series is co-produced by Andrew Gregory Krzak.
Humans of Learning Sciences is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Alison Castro Superfine, Director of the Learning Sciences Research Institute.
