About the Speaker

Lisa Rosen


Lisa Rosen is the Executive Director of the UChicago Science of Learning Center and the Research Program Director for its initiative, Successful Pathways from School to Work. She is particularly interested in fostering collaboration between researchers and practitioners to translate research on learning into interventions that can improve learning in both home and school settings. She holds a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from the University of California at San Diego. She recently completed a book with Stephen W. Raudenbush and Elizabeth McGhee Hassrick, The Ambitious Elementary School: Its Conception, Design, and Contribution to Educational Equality (University of Chicago Press, 2017). The book draws on her prior work at the Urban Education Institute, where her research examined the social and cultural dimensions of urban school effectiveness and improvement. Her work has appeared in several volumes on the anthropology of education and education policy, including in the American Educational Research Association’s 2009 Handbook of Education Policy Research. She has been at the University of Chicago since 2000.


About the Workshop on Human Potential

The Workshop on Human Potential is one of the core intellectual activities of the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy. It is an interdisciplinary forum for graduate students, post docs, and faculty whose work concerns behavior, health, and well-being across the lifespan and the ways in which technology and public policy shape human potential and achievement. The workshop has active members in the areas of the social, behavioral, health, and policy sciences.

The Workshop on Human Potential alternates between two types of sessions. Not only do we regularly invite outside speakers for a traditional “workshop” presentation, but we also provide a forum for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students to present research-in-progress in order to receive critical and constructive feedback.
