223 Townsend Hall or ZOOM
Join us for “Connecting Critical Systems: Fostering Children’s Academic, Behavioral, and Social-Emotional Development through Family-School Engagement" a keynote presentation by Dr. Tyler Smith, College of Education & Human Development MizzouForward faculty candidate. Dr. Smith will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.
Dr. Smith is currently a Senior Research Associate in the Missouri Prevention Science Institute in the Department of Educational, School & Counseling Psychology here at Mizzou. He earned his PhD in Psychological Studies in Education and his MA in Educational Psychology, both from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
Through an interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Smith’s research is oriented in ecological-systems theory, behavioral principles, and prevention science. Broadly, his research agenda focuses on (1) creating partnerships between children’s two most critical support systems (i.e., families and schools) and (2) using advanced meta-analysis methods to evaluate school-based interventions and determine conditions that support their efficacy. Projects under this agenda are critical to informing best practices of family-school engagement and school-based interventions and will continue to lead to refined efforts aimed at increasing intervention efficacy for diverse samples and settings.
