In this training program, postdoctoral fellows are immersed in ongoing projects in applied scientific research in education. Senior researchers provide fellows with complementary training in the use of state-of-the-art methodologies. The research team is currently evaluating the scale-up of a preschool mathematics curriculum and is examining the conditions under which the intervention improves student learning and achievement. This scale-up project provides the immediate context for work with postdoctoral fellows and offers multiple opportunities for fellows to extend the research and develop empirical questions.
