New Gen Learning
Faculty and students in New Gen Learning (formerly ALSiNG) collaborate to develop interdisciplinary research that identifies the cultural strengths of learning by children and students from historically underserved populations and ways to leverage those strengths in formal and informal settings for learning.
One of the goals of New Gen Learning is to develop an open-access digital archive of research-based materials to support inclusive teaching and learning, to provide information to researchers and educators working at UC Santa Cruz, in preschool-to-graduate education, and informal learning. This is in collaboration with CITL.
New Gen Learning will create a library of research-informed short videos, animations, TED-like documentaries, and games to disseminate findings in an accessible language and format for the broader community.
