Morgan Faculty, Students Present at National Science Education Conference

Associate Professor of Science Education, Catherine Martin-Dunlop, recently presented a research paper at the 20th annual conference of the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE)in Charleston, South Carolina (January 9-12). She took four graduate students from her department and they also presented research papers.

Samantha Strachan’s presentation and poster was titled, “Exploring Foreign Science Teachers’ Perceptions of Cross-Cultural Classroom Issues.” She is also a member of ASTE’s Equity Committee and is working to increase the number of African American students and university faculty who attend this conference.

Megan Moffa, Ana Lluch, and Shenell Bolden had a 1-hour presentation titled, “An Empirical Study of Scientific Reasoning Skills Among Urban Secondary Students.” Their hands-on session required the audience to do the actual test that they had given to their own high school students as part of an action research project for Professor Martin-Dunlop’s class.

Professor Martin-Dunlop’s research included quantitative data gathered over six years on graduate students’ understanding of the nature of science.
