Learning Sciences 

"The learning sciences is an interdisciplinary field that studies teaching and learning. The goal of the learning sciences is to better understand the cognitive and social processes that result in the most effective learning and to use this knowledge to redesign class-rooms and other learning environments so that people learn more deeply and more effectively," Dr.  Keith Sawyer

"Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a

framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into

how humans learn." ~ CAST
