Problem based learning environments — particularly in STEM disciplines


Point of Contact: Rose Marra at
Dr. Marra just received an NSF grant to study metacognition development in engineering students at the PBL Iron Range Engineering Program. Dr. Marra is actively seeking to hire a GA to help with data collection and analysis for this project.
Design, implementation and research of tools used to support meaningful collaboration in online settings. Dr. Marra was PI of the NSF funded SCEE (Supporting Collaboration in Engineering Education) where she created and researched tools to support online and asynchronous collaboration for engineering problem solving. Dr. Marra is currently working with colleagues to extend and refine this idea for supporting “kitchen” science labs in online K-12 science learning in the context of the MIZZOU K-12 Online High School.
