The Chicago Education Workshop Lecture Series

    The Chicago Education Workshop Lecture Series
    1200 noon until 120 pm

The Workshop on Education alternates between two types of sessions:

  1. The New Findings in Education section functions as a typical University of Chicago workshop with detailed presentations, discussions and critical evaluations of new findings.  Presentations are presented by university faculty and students, as well as experts from other universities. 
  2. Methodology sessions involve student presentations of works-in-progress.  Discussion is aimed at helping colleagues plan their next steps.
