We are pleased to welcome Dr. Mei-Hung Chiu, Professor of Science Education at the Graduate Institute of Science Education (GISE) at National Taiwan Normal University to Michigan State University.
CREATE for STEM will be hosting Dr. Chiu for the first two weeks of September; she will be meeting with various colleagues inside and outside of CREATE, as well as giving a presentation entitled "My Journey to Science Education Research" on Wednesday, September 11, from noon - 1:30pm in the new open area in the CREATE suite. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided!
Dr. Chiu will present two topics in her presentation: she will discuss theories and frameworks of the nature of models and modeling, and then offer emperical evidence to show how model-and modeling-based instruction and assessment can be implemented in school science practice. Second, she will introduce a series of studies about how facial microexpression states (FMES) play roles on predicting students' conceptual change status in counter-intuitive scenarios. Both cases may provide some implications for deep learning of sciences.
Please mark your calendars and help us in welcoming Dr. Chiu to CREATE, the College of Education, and MSU.
