SLI Celebrates 5th Anniversary

01/23/2018

January 2018 marks the 5th anniversary of the Science of Learning Institute. We are pleased to share our key accomplishments and future vision for the Institute in our 5-year anniversary book.


January 2018 marks the 5th anniversary of the Science of Learning Institute.  The Institute began with a single big idea – to unpack the “black box” of learning. Learning occurs every day throughout the lifetime – from infancy to adulthood, across formal and informal environments. Yet we still do not understand the fundamental processes by which it occurs. In order to achieve truly new insights about the nature of learning, we began by building bridges among the sciences, and closing the gap between science and practice. As we reflect over the last 5 years and begin our future journey, we are proud to have launched the beginning of a wave of exciting collaborations, connections, and community-building -- all of which represent new bridges among researchers and practitioners across the divisions and departments of Johns Hopkins and beyond. 

From basic brain and cognitive science research to machine learning, translation of science to practice, and dissemination, the Science of Learning Institute has delivered on its founding strategic goals. We are pleased to share our key accomplishments and future vision for the Institute in our 5-year anniversary book, Unpacking the "Black Box".  Click link to download a PDF of the book.
