Our Research

The TLC lab conducts research on a broad range of topics in psychology, including children’s early social and linguistic development and improving psychology instruction. The lab’s developmental research program explores how infants and young children process social information in the speech signal and how this relates to the development of linguistic and social competencies. The lab’s pedagogical research program has focused on ways to optimize student learning in the classroom. In particular, we are interested in how student’s language background and life experiences influence learning. Our work has also examined the effectiveness of teaching technology in facilitating student learning and engagement.
