What is LINC?
The MIT LINC Conference brings an international group of researchers and practitioners together to discuss how learning science, pedagogical approaches, and digital learning can provide quality pK-12, higher education, and workplace learning at scale, particularly in developing nations.
Join our discussion and help shape important research and outreach policies as we navigate the expanding dimensions of learning in an era of rapid technological and social change.

LINC invites scholars, practitioners, students, corporate executives, government officials, foundation professionals, EdTech companies, and startups to gather and share research on and insight into digital learning engineering, learning sciences, and pedagogical approaches. LINC attendees are encouraged to network, seek collaborations, and present their own research and experiences during the conference.
Pre-conference Workshops (Monday, June 17th)
We are holding four pre-conference workshops on Monday, June 17th, available for an additional fee. You may attend the workshops as a stand-alone course, or to enrich your LINC Conference experience. The morning and afternoon workshops do not overlap, so you may purchase a ticket for both a morning and an afternoon session if you would like to attend two.
Purchasing a ticket for a pre-conference workshop does not register you for the actual LINC conference. Conference tickets must be purchased separately.
Full descriptions of the workshops can be found here: https://jwel.mit.edu/linc-2019-pre-conference-work...
