Proseminar Series 2010-2011

The Institute for Education Sciences-funded Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Research Training (IES-PIRT) program is an interdisciplinary fellowship program designed to train students of diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences. In addition to funding doctoral students from the six affiliated departments across NYU (Steinhardt/Applied Psychology, Teaching and Learning, Humanities and the Social Sciences, and the Institute for Education and Social Policy; GSAS/Economics and Sociology; and the Wagner School of Public Service) the program includes a proseminar series. The series brings together presentations by both NYU and external experts who will help to introduce, reintroduce, and consolidate students' advanced understanding of the concepts of internal, external, construct, and statistical validity.

The proseminars are held on Mondays from 12:00-1:30PM during the academic year.
