The purpose of this workshop is to advance conceptions of learning communities by considering exciting new lines of research on them. While learning communities such as Brown and Campione's Communities of Learners (CoL, 1994) and Scardamalia and Bereiter's Knowledge Building Communities (KBCs, 1994) are foundational ideas in the learning sciences, the field has come a long way since with innovations in learning communities across a range of contexts. To do this, this workshop will bring together participants interested in the theory and practice of learning communities as we together consider various examples of cutting-edge learning community research.
