MSU & DEI Joint Research Colloquium

April 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am EDT

The Office of International Studies in Education is hosting a joint research colloquium between the MSU College of Education and Dayalbagh Educational Institute (DEI) in India. The college recently established a link with DEI, and this event will be a wonderful opportunity to begin to learn more substantively about research interests of DEI colleagues, hear from COE colleagues, gain initial ideas for opportunities to collaborate in research and understand current pressing topics within education.  Several researchers from DEI will be here in person, and others will join the colloquium virtually.
