Title: Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Research and Training Fellowship in the Educational Sciences (IPoRT Fellowships)
Center: NCER Year: 2008
Principal Investigator: Homer, Bruce Awardee: City University of New York
Program: Postdoctoral Research Training Program in the Education Sciences      [Program Details]
Award Period: 4 years Award Amount: $650,020
Goal: Training Award Number: R305B080007
Description:

The Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Research and Training Fellowship in the Educational Sciences (IPoRT Fellowships) is designed to prepare future leaders in educational science and technology research. IPoRT fellows will learn to apply state-of-the-art knowledge from cognitive science and the science of learning to understand studentsí educational experiences and to develop and rigorously evaluate new educational products and approaches. Given the growing importance of computers and the Internet for education and research, the training program will have a strong focus on the use of technology for developing educational tools, and technology as a tool for conducting educational research. The IPoRT Fellowships will produce scholars who have the knowledge of theory and rigorous methodological and statistical skills to make major contributions to our understanding of learning and education, and who can develop and empirically validate technology-based solutions for real-world educational settings.
