FABBS Foundation Honors Robert Glaser
Robert Glaser, PhD (University of Pittsburgh) is now featured in the FABBS Foundation's program which honors eminent, senior scientists.
Robert Glaser is an internationally recognized scholar in the fields of psychology, cognitive science, and learning and instruction. In 1963, Glaser co-founded LRDC at the University of Pittsburgh (with J. Steele Gow) and served as its director until 1997. The Center was among the first in the world focusing on learning studies, with a mission to investigate learning, instruction, and schooling for the improvement of educational practice. The Center’s interdisciplinary research agenda was established at a time when scholarship rarely involved researchers from diverse fields. LRDC continues that tradition today, bringing together leading researchers in the cognitive, social, and educational sciences.
