Pittsburgh Univ., PA. Learning Research and Development Center.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Educational Research at the University of Pittsburgh afforded the opportunity for two selected participants to engage in intensive study which expanded their capabilities in the area of research methodology. In addition, the program provided them with extensive research experience. A plan for individual study was developed which included advanced work in educational statistics, research design, and computer applications. The actual research experiences were associated with research currently in progress in the Individually Prescribed Instruction Project and in the Learning Strategies Project. The seminars and course work which the participants selected were in the Department of Education Research and in Computer Science. Participants were Dr. William D. Hedges, chairman, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Missouri, and Dr. Sigmund Tobias, professor of educational psychology, City University of New York. (A list of courses and seminars taken by each participant are included.) (Author/RT)
