Creating a Public Forum of Critical Learning Sciences Scholarship in Canada
The NLSC is committed to work toward becoming a public forum of critical scholarship addressing inequity, racism, and social injustice in education through research in the Learning Sciences. We do not argue that all learning sciences scholars should change their research agenda, but should recognize the pervasiveness of the silence by the Canadian institutions and our scholarship and start having conversations on how we can take actions. The purpose of this panel is therefore to start the conversations among the Canadian Learning Sciences scholars of diverse research interests and backgrounds whether or not they have critical scholarly agendas and have in-depth conversations on what we can do through our scholarship, teaching, and service responsibilities in academic institutions.
