From the speaker's bio:
Sarah Cannon is a doctoral student in Human Development and Social Policy. She earned her bachelor's degree in Sociology/Anthropology from Carleton College. She came to Northwestern after teaching high school math in South Dakota, for two years through the Teach for America program. Her two years of teaching in an underserved remote district have motivated her to understand how to close the educational achievement gap in rural communities. David Figlio is her advisor.
The objective of the Causal Inference in Education Research Seminar (CIERS) is to engage students and faculty from across the university in conversations around education research using various research methodologies.
This seminar provides a space for doctoral students and faculty from the School of Education, Ford School of Public Policy, and the Departments of Economics, Sociology, Statistics, and Political Science to discuss current research and receive feedback on works-in-progress. Discourse between these schools and departments creates a more complete community of education scholars, and provides a networking opportunity for students enrolled in a variety of academic programs who share common research interests. Open to PhD students and faculty engaged in causal inference in education research.
