ISLS NAPLeS Objectives

The Network of Academic Programs in the Learning Sciences (NAPLeS) is a network of Ph.D. and master‘s programs in the Learning Sciences. NAPLeS is part of the educational mission of the International Society of the Learning Sciences. It was officially founded at the 2012 ICLS meeting.

The overall mission of NAPLeS is to foster high quality Learning Sciences programs internationally through several mechanisms that support teaching and learning:

  • Examples of syllabi used in existing Learning Sciences programs
  • Resources prepared by renowned learning scientists on specific topics in the Learning Sciences
  • Visiting scholarships for students to Learning Sciences programs other than their own
  • International supervision of doctoral research
