EP Department Faculty
The Department of Child Study and Human Development has outstanding faculty that work closely with the Children’s school. As stated on the website, the Department’s signature emphasis on RPI (research-practice integration) is reflected in its commitment to developmental science, in the applied research of its faculty, in the grantsmanship and productivity of its research centers, institutes, and special programs, and in its community-based partnerships through which collaborative research and applied projects are implemented.
As a laboratory-demonstration school to the department, instructional practice at the Eliot-Pearson Children’s School is strongly aligned with faculty research and commitment to research-practice integration. Collaborations between EP faculty and the Children’s School inform our collective and individual research and practice and enhance the teaching and learning that take place at the department and our school. From research-based projects to course collaborations, children and families within our school and in the larger community stand to benefit from our and the EP Department’s mission to serve children and families in diverse communities and contexts of an ever changing world.
