Please join us in celebrating 50 Years of Contributing to the Learning, Cognitive, and Educational Sciences
In 1963, Robert Glaser and J. Steele Gow, co-founded LRDC at the University of Pittsburgh. LRDC was one of the first institutions in the world to receive federal funding to investigate learning, instruction, and schooling for the improvement of educational practice. A number of key journals in the cognitive science of instruction started at LRDC, reflecting its status in bringing that field to life. Today, the institution that Glaser founded continues to contribute to the learning, cognitive, and educational sciences. To celebrate the anniversary, a number of exciting events are planned throughout the year.
