About the speaker:
Catherine Tamis-LeMonda, PhD (New York University) is a Professor of Applied Psychology at New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Professor Tamis-LeMonda is currently working on a number of research projects, all of which focus on cognitive development in children during pre-school years. As the Director of the Center for Research on Culture, Development and Education, Professor Tamis-LeMonda works directly with over a dozen students and collaborates with faculty from across disciplines in the social sciences to explore the ways in which learning develops within different cultural and ethnic groups.
In this webinar, Professor Tamis-LeMonda will discuss some of her current research on cognitive development and early literacy. This talk will explore questions such as: How do infants’ interactions with mothers, fathers and other members of their families and social networks affect their language development, learning trajectories and later school readiness? How might developmental pathways differ across cultural communities that vary in parenting views and practices?
