Wednesday Lunch Hour - Developing a K-12 Research Collaboration across Computer Science, Data Science and Warner

Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

K-12 Schools across the United States continue to adopt digital instructional practices along with numerous digital “technology” tools to advance instruction and teaching practice with a goal of positive impacts on student learning and achievement.
As these new and evolving tools and practices take shape, there is significant opportunity to study their impact on teaching practice and student achievement along with the opportunity to design and develop new tools that could advance the purpose and mission of K12 schools and K12 pedagogy.
As we think of this in a holistic way as a research institution and in particular as a graduate school of education, there are emerging opportunities to collaborate across departments and schools at the UR to advance the goals of K12 while simultaneously advancing the research mission at Warner and more generally across the UR.
In this session, we will share and examine the conversations, ideas, and evolving nature of a collaborative research project that intersects diverse interests, knowledge, and capacities across the Warner School of Education, The Goergen Institute of Data Science, and the Department of Computer Science.

Presented by Dave Miller, Associate Professor and Associate Director, Center for Learning in the Digital Age; Zhen Bai (computer science), and Ella Wan (Data Science & Warner).

A light lunch will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 am. The program will begin promptly at noon.

No need to RSVP. For any accommodation needs please contact Mary Judge at (585) 275-2454 or email at
