Etienne Wenger (1952-) is an educational theorist and practitioner, best known for his formulation (with Jean Lave) of the theory of situated cognition and his more recent work in the field of communities of practice. Wenger holds that learning is an inherently social process and that it cannot be separated from the social context in which it happens.
Wenger is originally from Switzerland, but currently lives in California.
