Our work combines a deep knowledge of Chemistry (its big ideas, practices, and scientific culture) with methods and models from education, cognitive science, and social psychology. In doing so, we examine issues related to how students learn chemistry, and inform the design of instructional materials and teaching strategies. We are particularly interested in:
- Chemistry Learning and Instructional Practices. We apply a knowledge-in-pieces perspective to investigate students' ideas about a number of chemistry concepts, including chemical bonding, absorbance phenomena, and molecular symmetry. We also develop and study course/curriculum design principles and instructional practices, such as multidimensional learning and system thinking.
- Equity and Inclusion in Chemistry Professional Training. We are interested in exploring the chemistry career ecosystem from Critical perspectives. We evaluate career and professional development opportunities and pursue asset-based frameworks for doing so. We also apply social cognitive career theory to explore the career choice goals of trainees from minoritized populations in various contexts, such as undergraduate or graduate training.
