As a candidate, you will establish and defend your personal research agenda. Learn to apply relevant social scientific theory, psychological theory, and educational design theory to our research. In addition, you will prepare a research grant proposal tailored to the needs and interests of major foundations and government agencies that support advances in learning sciences.
