Postdoc Talk and Reading (Feb 27, 3-4:30PM) - Led by Kamali Sripathi


Monday, February 27, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm


CREATE Conference Room (115 Erickson)
Every two weeks, one of Create4Stem’s postdocs presents on her/his work and we do a reading session after the talk. We would like to invite other postdocs to the presentations (usually in the first 30-45 minutes). If you’re interested, you are of course also welcome to stay for our reading session (second half of the meeting). The next postdoc talk and reading group meeting will be held February 27th from 3-4:30PM in the CREATE conference room. At this meeting we will start with a presentation by Kamali Sripathi, who is a (relatively) new post-doc at Mark Urban-Lurain’s group. After her talk, we will continue with a reading she suggested: Derry, S.J. (1996). Cognitive schema theory in the constructivist debate. Educational Psychologist, 31:3-4, 163-174. DOI: 10.1080/00461520.1996.9653264. For those of you who are interested in this area of research, Kamali also suggested another reading which also focusses on the cognitive schema – but with a neuroscience perspective (Ghosh and Bilboa 2014). However, we will probably not have time to discuss this reading in the meeting. Please prepare a question for discussing the reading!
