Linking Socio-Cultural Theories of Learning with an Institutional Theory of Organizations: Implications for Theory, Practice and Collaboration


"This roundtable reflected the work of a research group in the Education Department of the University of California, Santa Cruz that is associated with the Center for Informal Learning and Schools (CILS). Our research group's general focus is the influence that social and political forces have on science learning and teaching. Specifically, we are interested in issues of equity and social justice in science education and therefore seek to understand how social norms and policy contribute to the unequal distribution of opportunities to learn science in both informal and formal settings."
