  • Brooke Whitworth, assistant professor in the Center for Science Teaching and Learning, contributed to a literature review on the missing link of leadership in the current professional development models for the Journal of Science Teacher Education. The review, “Professional Development and Teacher Change: The Missing Leadership Link,” explores professional development in science education and identifies school and district science leaders as a critical factor missing from current models.
  • Physics and Astronomy professor David Trilling’s research using the Dark Energy Camera in the Chilean Andes was featured in Symmetry. Trilling and his colleagues spent three nights in 2014 looking through the telescope for centaurs, objects with characteristics of both asteroids and comets, and plan to report their findings later this year.
