As you may know, NEAG has a search underway right now for two faculty positions in Learning Sciences. Given this busy time of year, we thought we’d send a bit of a “save the date” notice for our remaining four candidates’ visits – please consider joining us to meet with any of these candidates! All will provide a research presentation and will engage in a small group discussion of a problem of teaching practice – you are welcome to either or both of those.
In addition to the details below, please watch Neag News for further details about each candidate’s visit.
