The lab has a few routines that allow us to set goals, review our progress, and celebrate our achievements. All lab members are invited to attend these routines.
RA working group meeting: Each week, research assistants meet to talk about how the past week went, get help and feedback, and set goals for the next week.
Lab meeting: Each week, we have a joint lab meeting with the Language and Cognition lab (Dr. Anna Papafragou). Usually a lab member presents on in-progress research, but sometimes we prepare for conference submissions or invite outside speakers.
We are also invited to attend several other relevant events around Penn.
Trueswell lab meeting: Weekly lab meeting of the Language Development and Language Processing Lab. Content usually includes someone presenting a practice talk, an idea for a research study, or an outside speaker.
Language evolution lab meeting: Weekly lab meeting of the Cultural Evolution of Language Lab. Content usually includes someone giving a practice talk or presenting an idea for a research study.
ILST seminar: Weekly seminar speaker hosted by the Integrated Language Sciences and Technology (ILST) MINDCore initiative.
MINDCore seminar: Weekly seminar speaker hosted by MINDCore.
Dev Group Meeting: Monthly meeting of the Penn Child Development Labs that we like to attend. Content typically includes practice talks by postdocs or grad students that are part of the lab group, or outside speakers with work relevant to group.
Psychology Colloquium: Biweekly speaker series broadly relevant to psychology hosted by the psychology department.
Linguistics seminar: Monthly speaker series hosted by the linguistics department.
Penn Linguistics Conference (PLC): Annual linguistics conference hosted by the Penn graduate students (see our lab wiki for a full list of conferences relevant to our work).
