Graduate students are essential to the work of the ISLE. Graduate students will develop academic communication skills as they are immersed in research and subsequent dissemination of findings at national and international academic conferences. Additionally students will be expected to contribute to writing for scholarly publications. Throughout this process, students develop strong theoretical foundations of learning, methodological expertise, and an ability to work with faculty, school administrators, and teachers – equipping them to address pragmatic challenges in education.
