    Northwestern's Department of Psychology is hosting a program on Friday, June 6th and Saturday, June 7th for undergraduates who are members of traditionally underrepresented groups (including first generation college students), and who are potentially interested in pursuing graduate study in psychology.  Activities will include a workshop designed to help with the graduate school application process and opportunities to meet psychology department faculty members and graduate students to learn what graduate school is like and how they might fit into the graduate programs and laboratory groups at Northwestern.  Travel and accommodation costs associated with participation will be covered, and the application process will be fast and free (applications are due by April 14th @ 5 pm).  If you know of any relevant students who may be interested in this program, I would be very grateful if you could bring it to their attention!  You can simply direct them to our website for more information.

     

    If there is an administrator or a student group in your department that is specifically concerned with student diversity issues, please feel free to forward this email message. We greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out about this program.

     

    Thanks so much,

    This year's MPA Annual Meeting will feature a symposium entitled, Cognition, Metacognition, and Knowledge Acquisition: Current Approaches to Learning in Complex Cognitive Domains. The symposium organizer is Thomas Carr (Michigan State University).

    The symposium includes papers from leading researchers in cognitive psychology and cognitive development:

    Blocking Benefits Foreign Language Pronunciation Learning More Than Interleaving
    SHANA CARPENTER, Iowa State University

    Successive Relearning Improves Course Exam Performance and Long-Term Retention
    KATHERINE RAWSON, Kent State University

    Test-Enhanced Learning across Domains: The Strange Case of Visuospatial Memory
    THOMAS H. CARR, Michigan State University

    From Action to Abstraction: Using the Hands to Learn Math
    SUSAN GOLDIN-MEADOW, University of Chicago

    Evidenced-Based Education Reform: Promising Approaches and New Directions
    JOHN DUNLOSKY, Kent State University

    Cognitive psychologists and cognitive developmentalists have become increasingly interested in doing research and developing theories that lead to applications in the real world. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the investigation of education-relevant problems, such as those represented here: foreign language acquisition, learning in academic courses, differences in learning across cognitive domains, and the role of different kinds of learning activities in maximizing achievement. The symposium brings together four different takes on what such research is like and what it might contribute to theory and to application, plus a discussion that aims to rise above the details to focus on what this "new wave" of applied cognitive psychology is all about.

    The symposium is Friday (5/2) at 10:30AM at the Chicago Palmer House Hilton. You may register for the annual meeting on the MPA website: www.midwesternpsych.org.
