PSYC 217 - Research in Learning, Language, and Cognition

Dr. Esposito’s research focuses on learning and cognitive develop across contexts, including with bilingual and minority language speakers. Current research focuses on school-aged children. We are examining how children learn across different educational contexts (including language contexts) and what cognitive abilities and socio-cultural factors influencing learning and academic achievement. How does educational context influence cognitive development and academic achievement? Do children integrate knowledge across languages and modalities and, if so, how? How does context affect learning on both the macro level and the micro level? We are investigating these questions through experimental research in both the laboratory and school settings.
