This program is offered at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Overview

About the program

The ETH Zurich - EPFL Joint Doctoral Program in the Learning Sciences (JDPLS) educates a new generation of dual-​discipline scientists, who will bring together knowledge and methods from multiple disciplines such as psychology, education, computer science and data science to answer questions of how people learn and hence how to teach in the digital age.
