Postdoctoral fellows in this program will receive training focused on designing and testing interventions intended to strengthen the language and literacy skills of children. Four fellows will be recruited to join the Children's Learning Research Collaborative (CLRC). Each fellow will receive two years of training.
As members of CLRC, the fellows will have the opportunity to:
Fellows will work on grant projects, attend research groups, learn advanced methods for identifying malleable factors; develop instructional practices that are theoretically driven, empirically based, and feasibly implemented; and rigorously evaluate the causal impacts of such practices when implemented under controlled conditions and under normal conditions. Fellows may audit classes and conduct research-related internships within alternative settings such as the Columbus Metropolitan Library or the Ohio Department of Education.
Through their training, fellows will develop:
