Dr. Iris Tabak named as Fellow of the International Society of the Learning Sciences

Dr. Iris Tabak from BGU's Department of Education has been selected as a fellow of the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS).




An endeavor begun years ago by the Awards committee and approved by the Board of Directors, the ISLS Fellows programme recognises those who have made major contributions to the field of the Learning Sciences since its inception nearly three decades ago. These individuals are each highly accomplished scholars and community members who will continue to serve in critical roles for the society in the future through their continued leadership and mentorship activities. The formal announcement took place in June at the 2017 Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) conference in Philadelphia, one of two biennial academic research conferences sponsored by ISLS.

The inaugural cohort of fellows including Tabak, consists of 18 distinguished learning scientists who have served previously as elected presidents of the society, editors of the two flagship journals (Journal of the Learning Sciences and International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning), and founders of the field. New fellows will be named in subsequent years through a selection committee consisting of existing ISLS fellows.
