Bruce Homer appointed to the Graduate Center

Bruce Homer

Associate Professor, Ph.D. Program in Educational Psychology

 Bruce Homer joins the Graduate Center from NYU. Homer’s research (which has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Institute for Educational Sciences) focuses on how children learn to use the cultural tools that store and transmit knowledge; these tools include language, literacy, and information technologies. He studies how the acquisition of these tools transforms cognitive and developmental processes, particularly the formation of representations. His work entails three lines of research—language and literacy, theory of mind, and computer-based learning. Homer co-edited The Development of Social Cognition and Communication, and he has published articles and book chapters. He holds a B.Sc. from Dalhousie University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Toronto.
