Anna Sfard’s Day
A special international conference
honoring Prof. Anna Sfard
Anna Sfard conducts research and teaches in the domain of learning sciences, with particular focus on the relation between thinking and communication. Her research is guided by the assumption that human thinking is a form of communication. Results of her theoretical and empirical research conducted within this communicational (or “commognitive”) framework have been summarized in the monograph Thinking as communicating: Human development, the growth of discourses, and mathematizing and in numerous articles and book chapters. Currently, she is a Professor Emerita at the University of Haifa, Israel. She served as the first Lappan-Philips-Fitzgerald Professor at Michigan State University and is the Visiting Professor in the Institute of Education, University College of London. She is the recipient of 2007 Freudenthal Award, the Fellow of American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the member of the American National Academy of Education (NAEd).
