Faculty Candidate Presentation Friday

The Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences will host science education faculty candidate Amy Lark from 11:05 to 11:55 a.m., Friday, Jan. 24, in Meese 109. Lark will give a research presentation, “Teaching and learning with Avida-ED: A model for the reform-based integration of science content and practice.”

Lark is a PhD candidate in science education at Michigan State University. She also holds an MS in Zoology from Michigan State. Her research focuses on how using research-based technologies influence teaching and learning of the nature and practices of science, and how these in turn are related to conceptual understanding and overall scientific literacy.
