iSchoolers in the News
Our iNews newsletter went out this week, which means we have a new dean’s message. Anind Dey talks about his first few months on the job and what he sees as priorities for the school.
Assistant Professor Negin Dahya is among the recipients of this year’s American Educational Research Association awards. She and colleagues from Harvard University collaborated on the outstanding article in education research.
The Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA) is embarking on an effort to raise libraries’ visibility in Africa. We talked to researcher Chris Jowaisas about the project.
