UW Graduate School Distinguished Speakers Series Welcomes David Klahr

March 30, 2009 — David Klahr, the Walter van Dyke Bingham Professor of Cognitive Development and Education Science at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, will deliver the keynote address at the seventh annual University of Wyoming Graduate Student Symposium.

As part of the graduate school's Distinguished Speakers Series, Klahr will discuss "Pasteur's Quadrant in the Education Sciences" at 1 p.m. Monday, April 6, in the Wyoming Union family room. His presentation is free and open to the public.

Klahr will explain the relationship between basic and applied research in education and psychology. He will tell how to introduce more rigor into educational research and how basic research may suggest ways to close the achievement gap in science education.

Klahr is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, a member of the National Academy of Education and a Charter Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science. He received his Ph.D. in organizations and social behavior from Carnegie Mellon's Graduate School of Industrial Administration in 1968.

The UW Graduate Student Symposium is April 6-7 on the second floor of the Wyoming Union. For a complete schedule of presenters, go to the Graduate School Web site at
