The Science of Learning Institute and the Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University is seeking a highly qualified post-doctoral research fellow to join an interdisciplinary research team to develop and evaluate a novel spatially-enhanced 3rd grade science curriculum and teacher supports.
SLI’s Kelly Fisher and Kristin Gagnier were awarded a Cognition and Student Learning (CASL) grant from the Institute of Education Sciences to develop a novel 3rd-grade science curriculum and teacher professional development supports. This 1.4 million dollar award is in partnership with Prince George’s County Public Schools.
SLI researcher, Susan Courtney, will become the university's next vice provost for faculty affairs.
Educators and school leaders will spend ½ day at Johns Hopkins University to gain first-hand experience in the conduct of science of learning research and explore how research is related to educational practice.
SLI team aims to understand the development of children’s block-building skill, how this spatial skill is linked to academic learning more generally, and how it can be nurtured to move children from "novice" to "expert" builders.
SLI explores how translational science can advance science and serve society at SRCD 2017
SLI co-develops faculty development workshop on science of learning research
SLI hosts AAAS workshop to explore (1) the importance of communication of scientific findings to broad audiences, (2) the traditional approach to dissemination and its limitations, (3) how to make science understandable and meaningful to general audiences while at the same time preserving scientific integrity, and (4) best practices in communicating scientific findings to target audiences.
Brain monitoring suggests autistic adults learn alternative processing strategies.
SLI worked with Baltimore City School's Office of Early Learning to share research on developing skills that are important for math and science learning.
