  • August 1, 2020
    4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

The third lecture of the series.

Guest Speaker:

Dr. Dave Braze, Haskins Labs, University of Connecticut

Topic: “Parts of Language-Foundations of Reading”

About the speaker:

Dave Braze has more than 25 years experience as a researcher and consultant in the areas of language, literacy, and cognition, and their application to education. Most of his research career was spent at Haskins Laboratories where he had leadership and technical support roles in several reading research projects funded by the National Institutes of Health. As part of that work, he was instrumental in developing eye-tracking techniques for observing how readers interact with print ‘in the moment.’ He currently works as an independent consultant for clients in government, industry, and non-profit sectors. He maintains active affiliations with Haskin Laboratories (where he was a full-time researcher for 17 years), University of Connecticut (where he completed his PhD in Linguistics in 2002), and the Literacy Coalition of Greater New Haven (where he has been a board member since 2015).
