Members of the program will join the Education and Cognition Journal Club. The weekly meetings run in the Fall and Winter terms, and draw researchers, educators, faculty, staff, and students from on and off-campus (through online video connection). In a typical meeting, we have representatives joining us online from several campuses to complement the in-person cohort to engage in lively discussions about assigned journal article readings connecting research on education and cognition to applications in education, training and policy.
Starting in Fall 2020, we will offer 2 versions of the meeting:
Introduction-level readings to introduce postdoctoral fellows to the field of Education Cognition. The readings are designed to showcase core concepts and ideas in the field. Paper will be easy to read and will not require any background in Psychology.
More advanced readings looking at new, cutting-edge research in the field of Education Cognition. These readings will require some knowledge of the field (the Fall term will suffice), and we will dissect the theories, methods, results and conclusions from the papers.
All are welcome to both terms of the Journal Club. The aim of both semesters is the same - how can we inform our own teaching practices using evidence-based strategies.
Through two semesters of participation, Members will gain a solid foundation in essential and applied readings in Education and Cognition to pursue discipline-based education research (DBER) projects and influence policy under the supervision of a faculty member.
