About the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center (TDLC)

Welcome to the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center (TDLC). TDLC is a Science of Learning Center (SLC), one of six SLCs funded by the National Science Foundation. The purpose of TDLC is to understand how the element of time and timing is critical for learning, and to apply this understanding to improve educational practice. Our aim is to achieve an integrated understanding of the role of time and timing in learning, across multiple scales, brain systems, and social systems. The scientific goal of the center is therefore to understand the temporal dynamics of learning, and to apply this understanding to improve educational practice.

We strive to continually build relationships between researchers, educators, students and the general public in order to generate new, transformational ideas. Please check the site regularly for upcoming events, talks, and Center happenings. We encourage you to contact us with any questions or suggestions – your opinion is important to achieving our shared goals!

TDLC is funded by NSF grant #SBE-0542013 to the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center, an NSF Science of Learning Center.
