About Me
I am one of a growing number of professional science educators who live on both sides of the divide between K-12 and University STEM communities. My professional efforts focus on closing that divide, bridging those communities. As I2U2 Education Program Leader in the Physics department at the University of Notre Dame, I work to put scientific data and scaffolded analysis tools online for pre-college teacher and student research. I also lead a research community at Saint Joseph's High School. After one year of migrating a research class to a wiki, the class has become a virtual organization, with members from the school taking it for credit, others not for credit, and others not from the school at all (some for credit at other schools, others not for credit.) I also wrote and serve as managing co-PI for a NSF-sponsored GK-12 program, the Notre Dame extended Research Community, an effort to involve graduate students in the construction of Integrated STEM Community.
