LearnLab, an NSF Science of Learning Center (SLC) at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, has an exciting summer research opportunity available to early career researchers in the fields of psychology, education, computer science, human-computer interfaces and language technologies.
The workshop is targeted to senior graduate students, post-docs and early career faculty. The workshop seeks broad participation, especially members of underrepresented groups as defined by NSF (African American, Hispanic, Native American) who may be considering a research or faculty position in the learning sciences.
This two-day workshop immediately precedes the LearnLab Summer School. The workshop theme is the research and innovation for enhancing achievement and equity, including these five areas:
- Enhancing Achievement through Educational Technology and Data Mining
- 21st Century Skills, Dispositions, and Opportunities.
- Opening Classroom Discourse.
- Course-Situated Research
- Motivation Interventions for Learning
