[A]n understanding of the nature of instructional theory is important to both your growth and the growth of our field.

(Reigeluth & Carr-Chellman, 2009)


Learning sciences is an interdisciplinary field that studies teaching and learning. […] The goal […] is to better understand the cognitive and social processes that result in the most effective learning, and to use this knowledge to redesign classrooms and other learning environments so that people learn more deeply and more effectively.

(Sawyer, 2006)
