Communications Intern 2024

The Global Science of Learning Education Network (GSoLEN) is a working network of over 700 researchers and educators in over 60 nations. GSoLEN seeks to accelerate the infusion of science of learning into classrooms and other places of learning around the world. GSoLEN participants identify issues to address, form working groups, and determine strategies that can then be adapted to unique nations and cultures. Our mission is to achieve maximum worldwide benefit from science-based strategies designed to meet the learning needs of  diverse learners and our global future, and to overcome the impact of systemic inequities on learning. GSoLEN’s main strategies include:

  • Growing the “network of networks” of like-minded organizations and individuals, and connecting them to amplify the work being done. 
  • The development and support of knowledge brokers, or individuals who can support the ‘translation’ of scientific research findings into education practice and policy.
  • Leading Action Collaboratives, groups based on member and community interest that can drive exploratory work or specific outputs to support the education sector to advance the integration of the science of learning to address persistent challenges.
  • The development of a “community square”, which will contain the infrastructure for scientists, researchers, and education practitioners to access and utilize data, as well as exchange and leverage resources.
  • The dissemination of knowledge through various platforms and channels, including publications, webinars, fireside chats, and social media engagements.

GSoLEN is currently seeking short-term interns to support its work in these areas.
