In the Department of Learning Sciences and Human Development, we focus on understanding and promoting deep learning and healthy human development across the lifespan as central unifying goals. To accomplish these goals, we believe three interrelated areas must be recursively considered: a) Socio/Cultural Context, b) Design, and c) Learning Theory/Human Development. These three areas align with traditional conceptions of Learning Sciences as a field, but we extend those conceptions to explicitly encompass contributions from the study of human development and to situate much of our work in rural or Appalachian social, cultural, and historical contexts. The department houses programs in child development and family studies, educational psychology, instructional design and technology, program evaluation and research, special education, and learning sciences and human development.
