Description:

Fellows in the Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Education Sciences at the University of Virginia Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) will be involved in a set of rich research and career development opportunities, including a primary research training rotation involving funded projects within CASTL. Among these projects are five randomized evaluation trials, quasi-experimental studies on large scale databases of state and national significance, planned comparison evaluations, natural history studies, and the Teachers for a New Era research program. These projects are organized in programs of research focused on early childhood/elementary classroom quality and intervention effects, teacher workforce quality and effects, and schooling experiences in relation to other developmental influences. In addition, work with affiliated faculty in a secondary rotation will draw into education sciences the expertise of faculty from across the University, including the Departments of Psychology, Economics, and Sociology.
