Dr. Sharon Wolf, Assistant Professor in the Human Development and Quantitative Methods division, will present a colloquium titled, "Leveraging Developmental Science for Educational Innovation: Lessons from Children in Low- and Middle Income Countries," on Monday, September 20, at 1:00 pm. Dr. Sharon Wolf is an applied developmental psychologist who studies how children's family and educational environments shape their development, focusing on disadvantaged populations in the United States and in low-income countries. Dr. Wolf's research informs interventions and tests the effectiveness of theoretically informed policy solutions designed to promote childhood development and learning through randomized field experiments. Dr. Wolf’s work focuses on three primary areas: developing and evaluating interventions to improve educational quality and child learning outcomes; the measurement of educational settings and children’s learning outcomes; and understanding the links between poverty, education, and child development.
