Part of the project is to identify experts and interested researchers within different multidisciplinary research areas in order to establish a network around the idea of the project. We have already started the identification process with the editing of the Danish textbook “Learning Theory & Didactics” (Qvortrup & Wiberg (red.) 2013) and with the planning of the conference “On the Definition of Learning”

Three international professors, who in various ways have been great inspirations to us, have shown an interest in joining the network and have invited a group of networks participants to visit their departments in 2014/2015:

  • Anna Sfard, Professor, Head of Faculty of Education, Department of Mathematics Education, University of Haifa, Israel
  • Paul Cobb, Professor, Department of Teaching and Learning, Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, Tennessee, USA
  • Christopher Winch, Professor, Department of Education & Professional Studies, Kings College, London, Great Britain

We will also have a seminar in spring 2015.
