Science of Learning: Collaborative Networks (SL-CN)


Wednesday, March 18, 2015


This solicitation launches the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) next phase of research in the Science of Learning (SL).  The new SL Program is designed to capitalize on the momentum created by the Science of Learning Centers (SLC) Program to continue developing an integrated, interdisciplinary SL community.  The goals of the SL Program are to: advance fundamental knowledge about learning through integrated research; connect the research to specific scientific, technological, educational, and workforce challenges; and enable research communities to capitalize on new opportunities and discoveries.  The Program is designed to support projects that – due to the activities supported and their interdisciplinarity and integrative breadth – do not fit into existing NSF programs. 

This solicitation invites proposals for the creation of new research networks to address important questions in the SL. Networks will focus on:

Advancing basic research through integrative, interdisciplinary perspectives and methodologies, through integration of theory and experiment, and across scales of analysis; and/or

Translating findings from basic research on learning to applications to benefit society and further inform fundamental theories of learning.

Each network is expected to engage in both of the following activities:

Partnership-building activities among the network participants to optimize scientific exchange for the co-design and execution of network goals; and

Collaborative, exploratory research to be conducted by the network participants.
