Learning Sciences Graduate Student Conference
November 14-15, 2020
A Message Concerning COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, some more seriously than others. Some of you may have become sick, undergone testing for the virus, or may just be attempting to maintain a sense of normalcy during this difficult time.
In times like these, communities must come together to provide support for all its members. We see this conference as a way to bring together graduate students across our field and offer them a meaningful way to connect with their peers. At a time of social distancing, it may feel odd to plan for a face to face event like this one, but we are very excited to announce this year’s plans.
The Learning Sciences Graduate Student Conference (LSGSC) is a gathering of emerging voices in the Learning Sciences and related fields to share and develop their ideas. Conference attendees have opportunities to foster a sense of community among graduate students across institutions and gain fresh perspectives on their research.
Over the past four years, this conference has cultivated a kind and generous community in which presentations are met with thoughtful, fun, and encouraging discussions. Students share work in various stages of completion. We especially encourage works-in-progress, first-time presenters, or work you have not yet shared elsewhere.
The fifth annual LSGSC will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on Saturday, November 14th and Sunday, November 15th. We will kick off festivities Friday, November 13th with a social event. This event is a great way to meet one another before we begin more formally sharing our work. A full schedule and list of faculty speakers will be announced in August.
