Luleå, A3011
Publicerad: 23 oktober 2018

Luleå University of Technology is proud to host the Inaugural Symposium of the Nordic Network for Embodied Learning (emLearning). The aim of the event is to launch and begin the task of consolidating Nordic empirical, interdisciplinary research on the corporeality of human cognition, focusing on learning processes, experiences, and meaning-making and its relevance for education.

The network aims to bring together researchers from an array of disciplines including but not limited to psychology, neurobiology, philosophy, education & school subject education to promote radically interdisciplinary research on the process of learning, rooted in embodied cognition.
