If you are a science or mathematics teacher, you probably wondered, what your students take out of your classes beyond a college or university admission. How does your teaching benefit your students? What are the skills that they will be able to transfer to their undergraduate studies that will serve them well? Luckily, Prof. Philip M. Sadler from Harvard and his team decided to conduct a study to figure it out. Yes, this is the same Prof. Philip Sadler who was the educator behind “A Private Universe” video that many of us have seen and used in our own teaching. I would strongly recommend you to try and check for yourself if you know your students well enough…This is an interactive website that bring the results of science education research to educators in the field in a fun and informative way.
And on a very positive note, for his work in the area of science education and numerous contributions to promoting science teaching and learning, Dr. Philip Sadler has been awarded the Robert A. Millikan Award by the American Association of Physics Teachers. We congratulate Prof. Sadler and wish him and his team continuous success.
