Dr. Ryan L. Stowe
University of Wisconsin, Stowe Research Group
Dr. Ryan Stowe, assistant professor of chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, leads a research group focused on precisely operationalizing learning in terms of what students should know and be able to do with their knowledge. He has researched the design, analysis, and refinement of the learning environment to help students explain and model phenomena in terms of atomic/molecular interactions. Highly interdisciplinary, this approach draws on cognitive psychology and chemical education research.
