Joshua Rosenberg, assistant professor of STEM education/science, and his colleagues, have received two major research grants.
The first is from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a learning analytics in STEM education research institute (LASER Institute). On this project, he will be acting as a senior personnel member and collaborating with Shaun Kellogg, Hollylynne Lee, Shiyan Jiang, Mark Samberg (all of NC State College of Education) and Rob Moore (of Old Dominion University). He will primarily be involved in planning for and teaching during the week-long summer institute, and in researching the effects of the institute. The institute will be established at North Carolina State University, with a goal of increasing the capacity of researchers to understand and improve STEM learning and learning environments through the use of new sources of data and analytical approaches.
The second is from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a project on enhancing science, technology, engineering, math, and medical science (STEMM) education in rural Appalachia called “Imagining Possibilities in post-secondary education and STEMM in rural Appalachia”. On this project, he will act as a co-investigator, along with co-principal investigators Melinda Gibbons (UT Educational Psychology and Counseling) and Erin Harden (UT Department of Psychology). This project extends an earlier NIH-funded project Gibbons and Harden led.
Congratulations to Professor Rosenberg and to all of the esteemed faculty partnering on these grants!
