Funding for Current Students

LS@UIC focuses on understanding learning as it happens in a range of settings, including schools, museums, community-based organizations and families. Our program prepares students to engage in research on learning in diverse contexts with an emphasis on the design, development and implementation of learning environments that support meaningful educational goals and provide sustainable solutions to the challenges learners face in and out of schools. Researchers in LS@UIC conduct research and design activities that are deeply rooted in authentic practices and leverage theories and methods from multiple research traditions with goal of improving learning conditions for those who have been and are disadvantaged by systemic inequities in educational institutions.
