IES-PIRT Proseminar Series

The Institute of 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 seven affiliated departments across NYU 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.

Unless otherwise noted, all sessions are open to the public (RSVP to ies.pirt.admin@nyu.edu only necessary if you are not affiliated with NYU). Sessions are scheduled at 12:00pm-1:30pm in Kimball Hall, 246 Greene Street, Room 607W.
