Kenneth Y T Lim works within the intersection of cultural anthropology, the learning sciences, and cognitive psychology. He conceptualised the Six Learnings framework of curriculum design for fictive worlds and virtual environments. Most recently, his team has designed a field-based inquiry curriculum, called Maker Motes, and they are translating this approach to urban and peri-urban schools in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. Kenneth has been a Visiting Scholar at the Hong Kong Institute of Education and was invited as a Plenary Speaker at the 2016 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Conference of the Asia-Pacific Programme for Educational Innovation and Development. His work has helped him posit a theory of learning around the notion of disciplinary intuitions, which he discusses in his book, Disciplinary Intuitions and the Design of Learning Environments (2015).
