Eye-Tracking for Diverse and Advanced Learning Techniques in Chemistry Education

Eye-tracking technology can objectively measure students’ cognitive engagement in culturally responsive learning environments. However, this technology still has not been fully used to improve the learning chances for educationally low performing students who have been subjected to deficit based descriptions to characterize their learning. Culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP), not deficit-based descriptors, is essential to preparing […]

Eye-tracking: Striking the Balance of Insight and Intervention

As a STEM education researcher, I’m interested in understanding and studying the physiological responses of students to pedagogical interventions. To gain deeper insight into learning, education researchers need to open up to nuanced research designs that use objective assessment technologies and instruments, other than standardized tests, to measure cognition and cognitive processes. And to gain […]

Why examining precursor non-cognitive variables is critical to improving STEM teaching and learning

Along with several of my colleagues, I have had the privilege of bringing to the forefront an exciting new study underway on gender equality in STEM education research. In short, the study examines non-cognitive variables of undergraduate freshman students majoring in STEM. While that’s not as attention grabbing or headline making as Katherine Johnson using […]
