As a postdoc in the College of Education at the University of Utah I am honored to be working on two main projects. First, I am collaborating with Dr. Lauren Barth-Cohen, Educational Psychology, to redesign and teach EDU 5375: Elementary Science Methods. Under Dr. Barth-Cohen’s leadership we have created a course that prepares pre-service teachers to facilitate young learners’ use of evidenced-based reasoning to explain the natural phenomena they experience in their daily lives.
