This workshop is designed for faculty who wish to advance knowledge about student learning and the success of teaching methods. Whether you are new to conducting and publishing education research or not, we will help refine and focus a research question, identify variables and convincing sources of evidence, select appropriate methods and publication venues, and organize the next steps in enacting your research plan.

Dr. Marguerite “Peggy” Brickman
Peggy Brickman is a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Professor of Plant Biology whose contributions to teaching have been recognized at the local and national level. Brickman received her Ph.D. in Genetics from U.C. Berkeley, but in her position as a Professor of Biology Education, she has become a driving force for the scholarship of teaching and learning at UGA, where her research and scholarship focus on new methods of teaching introductory biology. Over 25,000 students since 1996 smile when they think of biology thanks to the enthusiasm and comedic gifts Brickman has brought to the classroom.
