1.     Prof. Dr. Ingo Eilks FRSC

Ingo Eilks (1968) is a full professor (chair) in chemistry education at the Institute for Science Education (IDN) at the University of Bremen, Germany, since 2004. Having been a grammar school teacher for chemistry and mathematics he later engaged in the domain of chemistry education research and development. His research interests encompass socio-scientific issues-based science teaching, education for sustainable development, teaching and learning the particulate nature of matter, or cooperative learning all for the high school level. For more than 20 years now these interests are deeply connected to cooperatively working with teachers following specifically adopted models of action research in science education. Further research focuses teachers’ beliefs and learning as well as innovations in higher level chemistry education. Ingo Eilks has written so far about 600 articles, chapters, textbooks, or has co-edited different books and special issues in international journals (more than 100 in the Web of Science). He was the co-editor of the first handbook on innovations in higher chemistry education (2009) and of the first international textbook on chemistry teaching for prospective chemistry teachers (2013). Since 2002, he is one of the organizers of the biannual symposia on chemistry and science education held at the Universities of Bremen and Dortmund, Germany.

 

 

2.     Gillian Roehrig

She is Professor of Science Education, Associate Director of STEM Education Center, Biology Teaching and Learning. Her research and teaching interests are centered on understanding how teachers translate national and state standards into teaching events and curriculum in their classrooms. Teachers’ knowledge and beliefs about teaching and learning directly influence the specific teaching practices implemented by teachers. Of particular interest is how teachers, from preservice through induction and into the in-service years, represent “science as inquiry” in their teaching and how different induction and professional development programs can influence teachers’ knowledge, beliefs, and classroom practices. In addition, with the current national and state focus on K-12 engineering, my work focuses on STEM integration. This includes teacher professional development and curriculum development to prepare teachers for integrating engineering into their science classrooms. Her teaching is centered on the preparation and mentoring of new secondary science teachers. The Teacher Induction Network (TIN) is an online mentoring and support program for beginning secondary STEM teachers. This innovative approach to supporting new teachers includes video annotation that promotes the development of reflective practice and reform-based classroom instruction. TIN has received two national awards for best practices and innovation in science teaching from the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the Association for Science Teacher Education.
