The Social Emotional Development Lab (SEDL) is a research collaboration among faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Focused on social and emotional development from infancy to late adolescence, the Lab provides a workspace for nascent to experienced researchers. Activities include the presentation and discussion of issues around research design, data collection, data analysis, interpretation, presentation, and publication as well as opportunities to review and discuss key theories and methods in the field. The casual atmosphere is designed to support student and faculty thinking on key issues and improve the caliber of research conducted. SEDL meets every other week during the academic year.
