Global experts gather online to collaborate on science of learning

 

A global online community dedicated to improving knowledge on the science of learning has been launched by prestigious international publishing group Nature Research and The University of Queensland.

UQ Queensland Brain Institute director Professor Pankaj Sah said the npj Science of Learning Community website was a space for teachers, policymakers and scientists working in neuroscience, education and psychology to discuss how to enhance learning in schools.

The site is a companion to the open access journal npj Science of Learning, which is edited by Professor Sah.

“The site is truly global, and we are launching with contributors from the USA, Europe, and Asia,” he said.

The website’s launch content includes:

Education news, events and summaries of the latest research into the science of learning would be published on the site, Professor Sah said.

‎Nature Partner Journals global director Martin Delahunty said the new website would be a high-quality and innovative source of knowledge.

“While there is no shortage of education information available, the npj Science of Learning Community brings together an engaged audience with trusted experts in the science of learning,” he said.

“Community members can discuss and debate with researchers and share information and the latest news and research.

“All information on the npj Science of Learning Community is freely accessible and republishable, which will help to maximise the site’s impact on improving education.”

The website is live now and free to join. 

Members can contribute opinion articles, teaching tools, learning news, videos and information about upcoming events.

Nature Research is part of academic publisher Springer Nature.
