Graduate Student Dissertation Research Awards

Division 15 (Educational Psychology) of APA invites graduate students
who are members of the division to apply for a dissertation research
award. The purpose of the award is to provide financial support for
educational psychology doctoral students who are preparing to collect
their dissertation data.

Applicants must be graduate students who have submitted or defended a
dissertation proposal to their committee and who are also members or
student affiliates of Division 15. For graduate students who are not
already a member or affiliate of the division, the website link to
join Division 15 is: http://www.apa.org/about/division/memapp.html.
[This website features a membership application to be mailed to APA,
though membership in APA is not a qualification criterion. Cost of
annual membership for a student affiliate is $10, a fee that includes
an annual subscription to the division-associated journal,
Educational Psychologist.]

Number of Awards
Two awards will be given each year.
Announcement of the award winners will be made at the annual APA
convention in Boston, August 14 - 17, 2008 during the business
meeting of the division.

Monetary Award
Each award is associated with a $1,000 monetary stipend.

  EARLI SIG 7: Learning and Instruction with Computers, and EARLI SIG
6: Learning and Instruction are pleased to announce the upcoming
conference entitled:

"Beyond knowledge: The legacy of competence in meaningful computer-
based learning environments"

Location: University of Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria
Dates: September 3-5, 2008

Conference Description

Learning and instruction with computers is intrinsically tied to
current educational practice in schools, universities, the corporate
world and informal learning settings. Nevertheless, integration of
technology in education is a sensitive task that has to be planned
well in order to meet the needs of learners, teachers and educational
objectives. Current changes in European education stress the role of
competences and educational standards and their fostering within
educational practice. Here, meaningful computer-based learning
environments can contribute to achieve competence acquisition and to
meet superordinate educational standards. Contributions dedicated to
empirical research (foundational as well as applied empirical
research) within this area are encouraged. Other contributions
covering the area of learning and instruction with computers within
schools, universities, the corporate world or informal learning
settings are welcome.
