Improving the teaching of scientific thinking

September 1, 2020
Dr. Susan Yoon, with co-investigator Clark Chinn (Rutgers GSE) has been awarded $2.1 million from the National Science Foundation to investigate needs and challenges in developing an informed public able to evaluate empirical evidence generated from scientific activities. The project will work with high school biology teachers to investigate their own understanding of scientific thinking, how it can be improved through professional development, and how this improvement can translate into practice to support student learning.
