GSoLEN working groups are formed to strengthen knowledge sharing and implementation practices for science of learning principles, globally. Two groups have been formed based on input from advisors and the broader list of participants on the issues that matter most that could be more deeply addressed through smaller, interest-based working groups. The two working groups are the teacher support network (TSN) and the digital learning working group (DL WG). GSoLEN continues to seek participation from other members to start and participate in these and other working groups of interest to participants. Please contact us to suggest topics or to start a working group.
THE TEACHER SUPPORT NETWORK (TSN)
The Teacher Support Network (TSN) was formed out of a desire to better align SoL with teacher preparation and with teachers in practice, with a focus on PreK, Primary, and Secondary (K12) settings. The group collaborates on shared issues and ideas affecting teachers around the world, and continues to seek new members from all countries to join.
THE DIGITAL LEARNING (DL) WORKING GROUP
The Digital Learning (DL) working group is concerned with learning models enhanced by technology, especially during the COVI 19 experience. Building on GSoLEN’s three part webinar on digital learning, this working group seeks representation from around the world who can share ideas about access and successful practices for teachers and students on how technology bolsters learning.
THE KNOWLEDGE BROKERING WORKING GROUP
The Knowledge Brokering Working Group seeks to bridge the communication gaps between the researcher and the educator and create the conditions for wide-scale implementation. Recognizing that many are already performing this important work, this working group will define the skills necessary for expanding the cadre of facilitators who bring together generators and implementers of knowledge about learning and teaching.
