We are now positioned to be a world leader in the science of learning. Thus far, the USA, Australia, China, Latin America, and Europe are invested in creating a global science of learning. Our UC San Diego community is central to organizing this effort with support from NSF, the International Brain Research Organization, the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and UNESCO. As leaders in the global science of learning community, we have made strides towards educational change. Our investments in human capital are immense. The time is exactly right to leverage all of the effort and success of the past decade for discovery and societal change – a paradigm shift in learning. Our vision:
In seven to ten years, we will significantly advance
the science of learning.
We will establish a pipeline from basic science to scalable tools
for enhanced learning, which will have measurable, sustainable, and lasting impact on
the next generation of education, machine learning, artificial intelligence and health.
