Dr. David Rose is a developmental neuropsychologist and educator whose primary focus is on the development of new technologies for learning. In 1984, Dr. Rose co-founded CAST, a not-for-profit research and development organization whose mission is to improve education, for all learners, through innovative uses of modern multimedia technology and contemporary research in the cognitive neurosciences. That work has grown into a new field called Universal Design for Learning which now influences educational policy and practice throughout the United States and beyond. Dr. Rose also teaches at Harvard's Graduate School of Education where he has been on the faculty for more than 25 years.
Dr. Rose is the author of several scholarly books, numerous award-winning educational technologies, and dozens of chapters and research journal articles. He has been the principal investigator on grants and contracts from the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, and many private foundations. Dr. Rose holds a B.A. in psychology from Harvard College, a master's in teaching from Reed College, and a doctorate from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
