The lecture series, “Fast & Curious: ED Talks from UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School," returns on Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm in the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. The evening is free and open to the public. In an effort to increase accessibility the School will provide ASL and Spanish language interpreters for the first time at this upcoming event. 

Three faculty members, two graduate students, and one postdoctoral fellow will give no more than eight-minute talks each about their research or work that is shaping education and applied psychology. For this edition of the series, all the presentations will discuss ways in which the Gevirtz School is centering its research and service on policy.

This event will be the ninth in the successful series that began in February 2017. The Gevirtz School, in partnership with the Santa Barbara Public Library, values this opportunity to bridge the town and gown divide, allowing the School to connect with a wider audience.
