The ASIS&T Information and Learning Sciences SIG invites students, emerging, and established scholars to participate in the SIG’s first ever paper competition. The SIG provides these awards to support scholarship and practice, encourage participation, and bring new perspectives and voices to the SIG. Three awards (described below) are available for different types of papers. The SIG aims to gather researchers in both information and learning sciences to reach a deeper understanding of the cognitive and social processes that facilitate inquiry, learning, and knowledge co-construction, in order to advance theories of learning, information-seeking, and learning systems’ design. This SIG builds upon the growing recognition of the ways in which the scholarly disciplines of information science and the learning sciences stand to enrich one another theoretically, methodologically, and, empirically, for instance through design improvements within systems in which human learning is to be expected.
