Academic Service

Our team is actively involved in a range of academic service areas, especially related to equity in STEM learning. Locally, I am also actively involved in academic service. To share research insights with the public and to foster research practice partnerships, my academic service extends beyond the academy and has involved mentoring at school and out-of-school learning environments as well as designing and facilitating public-facing workshops across the K-16 spectrum internationally also in collaboration with industry partners, not-for-profit organizations, and foundations.

Ongoing activities

ISLS 2023 Pre-conference Workshop "Navigating the in-between: Making a place for early career scholars to share and connect across borders (June 2023)
This workshop recognizes the need for a peer-supported and sustained space for international early career researchers in the learning sciences across various geographies and institutional contexts. As a supplement to ongoing educational initiatives in the learning sciences, we seek to connect early career researchers through shared dialogue about the ways they navigate professional trajectories. Participants will exchange experiences, explore shared interests, discuss ways of working, and share approaches on navigating the pre-tenure space. Workshop organizers: Anna Keune, Naomi Thompson (Buffalo), Ryan Cain (Weber State), Tolga Kargin (Usak), Areej Mawasi (Technion), Maggie Dahn (UCI).
