Her research, writing, and teaching focus on using these practices to continuously improve the undergraduate education of students within - and beyond - the HDFS department.
Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences
Dr. Gardner's research focuses within the context of engaging undergraduate students in the process of science, critical thinking, and using visualizations to understand and communicate data and concepts. Within this area she is currently working on three projects: 1) Evaluating the long-term impact that research-based introductory biology lab experiences have on student persistence in Biology and other STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) majors, performance in coursework, interest in research, career choices, and views on the nature of science and inquiry, 2) Understanding student and expert reasoning when creating graphical representations of biological data, 3) Understanding student ideas about mechanisms in physiology and neuroscience.
