What you will learn

AIRE Learning Sciences

The Learning Sciences programme is dedicated to learning sciences and digital practices in education. It aims at training creative and talented students to become the future researchers or change makers in education and pedagogy. We believe that in parallel with the digital and environmental transitions, there is a “learning transition” which transform our ways to learn, teach, conduct research but also the way we work, manage and collaborate. This program is based on the figure of the Social Scientist Entrepreneur with a curriculum using project-based methodology, reverse pedagogy, mentoring and peer-to-peer learning. Each year, we work with classes of passionate students who have the desire to learn, explore and co-construct together.

  • 19 nationalities
  • 22 fields grouped together
  • 33 unique students
First year planning

The first year is an intense entry into the field of Learning Sciences! Designed to provide you with a global understanding of the digital transformation happening in education and pedagogy, support to design a relevant and challenging research problematic or entrepreneurial project. The course structure encourages work in the form of projects, promotes exchange and feedback, multiplies formats (workshops, seminars, lectures, peer-to-peer sessions, etc.) in order to maintain an intense and challenging intellectual emulation.

Our students & alumni

Each year we welcome about forty participants in the program: students are coming from all over the world (19 different nationalities) and from very different backgrounds (educational science, computer science, psychology, economy, design, medicine, humanities, biology, cognitive science, etc.). This diversity is an exceptional opportunity for students to discover the power and efficiency of collaborative and mutual teaching and learning. No matter what is your previous academic or professional journey, we are looking for talented students who wish to engage in the transformation of education in the learning society.
