Humanities Education Focal Group

Want to help save the humanities from disappearing?

 

Then you should know how to get students to take your classes. 

 

The way undergrads choose courses is complicated, yet educators and students have always relied on anecdotal information about the factors that influence these decisions. Stanford's Carta Lab is one of the main research centers that studies this process. 

 

The Humanities Education Focal Group invites you to join us for lunch and interdisciplinary conversation as Prof. Mitchell Stevens of the Graduate School of Education at Stanford shares an overview of Carta's work since 2016.

 

Please RSVP here if you plan on attending, and we look forward to seeing you in Room 252, Pigott Hall, at 12.30pm next Thursday.
