The purpose of this exchange agreement is to provide international scholarship and research experiences for doctoral students in Educational Psychology at both institutions. The affiliation will create strong international networks among the future generations of scholars and facilitate the development of an international network of colleagues and potential research collaborators. Scholarly activities will include course enrollment in advanced seminars and additional curricular activities (e.g. visits to schools, educational agencies, and research laboratories.) The exchange agreement involves only the graduate students in the Department of Education within the College of Education at KU and the graduate students in the Department of Educational Studies within the College of Education and Human Ecology at OSU.
