Abstract

Enculturation is a central and defining concept of the learning sciences. However, the concept may be under-theorized. In this study, we have reviewed and synthesized how enculturation, both in researchers’ discourse and when designed for in practice, has been taken up by learning scientists. Based on the findings of our meta-synthesis of relevant literature, we propose three different types of enculturation discourses. We provide illustrative examples from past learning sciences research and discuss several relevant phenomena. Such findings can help the learning sciences reflect upon its own research.
