Graduate Training in the Epistemic Analytics Lab

Graduate Training

Interested in graduate training at the intersection of educational technology, learning analytics, and data science? The Epistemic Analytics lab, situated in the University of Wisconsin’s #1 ranked educational psychology program, is recruiting graduate students for the Fall 2019 cohort. Directed by Prof. David Williamson Shaffer, the Epistemic Analytics lab develops novel methods and statistical tools to improve the assessment of complex and collaborative thinking.

As a graduate student in the Epistemic Analytics lab, you will develop expertise in research design, statistics and statistical programming, and quantitative ethnography, and you will have opportunities to lead research projects, collaborate with scholars from around the world, present your work at national and international conferences, and publish first-author journal articles. Graduates of the lab have gone on to careers in both academia and industry as professors, researchers, data scientists, and learning engineers.

Applications are due 1 December 2018. For more information about the application process, visit the Department of Educational Psychology’s admissions page. Due to the large volume of applications we receive each year, we strongly encourage potential candidates to contact one of our current graduate students to learn more about the work of the Epistemic Analytics lab and the learning sciences program at UW–Madison. While funding is not guaranteed for all applicants, current and past graduate students in the Epistemic Analytics lab have all received a tuition waiver and stipend throughout their degree program.
