There is no fee for this event.


Our 2023 annual LearnLab Corporate Partners Meeting will be held Tuesday, May 10. We will hold the event in person in Pittsburgh.

As the pandemic accelerated a shift in the delivery of education from in person to online, this year’s theme is “Learning Engineering: A New Normal” with the underlying goal to accelerate technology transfer from our university into industry. We welcome you and your colleagues to join us.

Our cohort of Masters of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) students graduate in August or December and are available to meet your educational technology and learning science needs. Feel free to reach out to these talented individuals at any time. Contact Michael Bett if you would like to give a company presentation, a talk on your organization’s current research, or host a meet-and-greet with our students and alumni. It’s a great low-cost way to get to know our students, their abilities, and schedule interviews.

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 postdocs 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.
