Scholarship of teaching and learning faculty research

Jessica SantangeloJessica Santangelo
Assistant Professor
Discipline-based education research (DBER) is an interdisciplinary field that utilizes social science methods and discipline-specific content to advance teaching and learning. Within this context, my lab studies how students learn and effective strategies instructors can use to help them learn. I am particularly interested in the role of metacognitive skills (skills related to the knowledge and regulation of learning) in student learning and strategies to promote metacognitive skill development. The goals of my lab are to develop and/or assess strategies that increase student learning and success in STEM disciplines.
