New Gen Learning is a research consortium that brings together faculty and PhD students across campus to spark interdisciplinary insights and innovations in research central to inclusive learning. The central mission of NGL is to conduct research focused on these two topics:
- The strengths that children and students from historically underserved backgrounds bring to learning environments from their homes and communities (both local and digital), and
- The practices that foster their learning, in instructional settings and design, technologies for learning, and institutional practices (e.g. positive campus climate and sense of belonging).
As part of this learning community, PhD students will expand their own research skills and perspectives, receive mentorship from faculty, and contribute to current discussions on education, learning, and equity.
Accepted Students’ Responsibilities/Expectations:
- Accepted students are expected to continue as members of the learning community for 2 quarters (although the funding is just for one quarter).
- Students who are interested in joining the learning community but do not need funding are also welcome to apply.
- Accepted students will be expected to attend monthly meetings (3 per quarter).
- Accepted students will also be expected to attend monthly students-led workshop meetings (3 per quarter).
- Accepted students will give a flash talk that summarizes their NGL-related research.
- Accepted students will engage in small-group discussion and collaborative activities on a topic related to the shared research interests of the group and/or design a study to address the major goals of the Learning Community.
Students receiving funding will have a GSR appointment that covers one quarter with a standard 50% time, which includes fee remission and GSHIP health insurance. NGL support does not include non-resident tuition. GSR salary is determined at the divisional level and is therefore dependent upon the GSR’s home department and year in the program.
