Research on learning: potential for improving college ecology teaching
Most STEM faculty have little knowledge of current research regarding student learning. This is detrimental to society as a whole because high attrition rates in STEM courses lead to fewer scientists and engineers. In her paper, D'Avanzo explores how STEM faculty (particularly ecologists) can become more effective educators.
