Our 8th annual LearnLab Corporate Partners Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 15 and Wednesday, May 16 at Carnegie Mellon University. This year’s theme is “Improving Process and Profits through Learning Science” with the underlying goal to accelerate technology transfer from our university into industry. We would welcome you and your colleagues to join us.

At the corporate partners meeting, you will learn about the latest learning science and educational technology research underway at Carnegie Mellon University. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet and recruit our current graduate students and post docs in the learning sciences as well as our Professional Masters in Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) students. For those who are interested in possible collaborations, we would welcome discussions with our faculty.

Early registration is $50. (Free for METALS and LearnLab alumni as well as past and current METALS capstone sponsors.)
