November 1, 2022   |   By WCER Communications

The following training programs are available for education scholars focused on adaptive interventions, implementation research studies and mentorship of trainees, respectively.

Comprehensive Program for Adaptive Interventions Training in Education (CATIE):

This 4-day training, March 14–17, 2023, in Ann Arbor will provide scholars with doctoral degrees in the education sciences with a rigorous foundation in the design, funding, conduct, and analysis of novel experimental design methods for optimizing adaptive interventions. No cost to attend; scholars must cover travel and lodging.

Deadline to apply is Nov. 12. Sponsored by the National Center for Special Education Research and the University of Michigan. Apply here.


Fellowship: Research Institute for Implementation Science in Education (RIISE):

The interdisciplinary RIISE program is accepting applications for a 2-year fellowship providing mentored training to established scholars (early, mid, or even later career) from any domain of education-related research around the conceptualization, design, and execution of implementation research studies. In-person training will be June 12–16, 2023, in Seattle.

Apply here by Dec. 18. Sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences.


Raising a Resilient Scientist Series:

A free webinar for faculty, staff scientists, and administrators who mentor students and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical, behavioral, and social sciences. A variety of topics will be covered with a specific focus on communication and shared problem solving to help trainees deal with the inevitable setbacks experienced in high-knowledge environments.

Registration is required here before each of five sessions, to be held noon–2:15 p.m. on Nov. 9 and Dec. 14 of 2022 and Jan. 11, Feb. 8, and March 8 of 2023.
