Carnegie Mellon University Doctoral Training Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research (PIER)

This new interdepartmental program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Institute for Education Sciences (IES), trains scientists to conduct the rigorous research needed for evidence-based educational practice and policy. PIER students deal with the bi-directional flow of ideas and challenges between laboratory studies and real world instructional applications. They are trained in Psychology, Statistics, and Human Computer Interaction to assess learners' knowledge at vastly different temporal and cognitive grain sizes, and they develop skills necessary to utilize cognitive science, educational technology and advanced statistical methods to advance our understanding of learning in a variety of contexts and settings. Applicants to PIER must concurrently apply to one of the participating departments.

For a complete description of PIER, and information about participating departments, see:
