The Applied Child Development Seminar Series offers a forum for the entire Erikson community — faculty, students, staff, and alumni — to engage in intellectual exchange on topics related to applied child development.

Professor Robert Halpern will focus the first seminar on his newly published book, Youth, Education and the Role of Society: Rethinking Learning in the High School Years. In the book, Halpern clarifies the developmental needs for adolescents and argues that work-based learning is central to the productive learning for all youth.

Halpern will use the first half hour to highlight the main arguments in his book, and the audience will discuss the book with him during the remaining time. Bring your lunch and join in the discussion!

Managed by Professors Jie-Qi Chen and Robert Halpern, the five Applied Child Development Seminars throughout the academic year are organized and implemented by the Doctoral Student Association at Erikson.
