Conference theme: Making a Difference — Prioritizing Equity and Access in CSCL

Computer Supported Collaborative Learning is a premier conference of the International Society of the Learning Sciences that focuses on the study of social learning processes with and without technology as well as the development and evaluation of tools to enhance or improve collective thinking and learning. The conference is a major international event bringing together researchers with a wide variety of backgrounds and research interests including educational technology, design, HCI, information sciences, educational psychology, museum research, library science, curriculum and instruction, psychology, computer science, cognitive science, and many more. We welcome high quality conceptual, empirical, and theoretical contributions.

This year's conference theme focuses on the need to consider issues such as equity, access, and inclusion in the design, implementation, and deployment of computer-supported learning environments. CSCL 2017 will prioritize keynote speakers, workshops and papers that champion research and tools focused on equity and access relative to CSCL. Hosted by a diverse leadership team in the Learning Sciences, the conference will highlight work that discusses ways to broaden the CSCL pipeline, promotes and/or celebrates out of the box thinking, or that brings a wide range of viewpoints or voices to CSCL topics or tools.
