Our approach

  • The STL Team is an experienced interdisciplinary team--its members have formal training in the fields of biology, linguistics, brain and cognitive science, social psychology, sociology, music education, education, and program evaluation. Capitalizing on this diverse set of knowledge, skills, and research methodologies, the STL Team scientifically studies the underlying basis of teaching and learning with the goal of describing, understanding, and improving teaching and learning in various contexts in higher education (see Privitera et al. 2023). Our broad goal is to answer the question, “What do we know about how postsecondary students learn and what does the answer mean for how we teach?”
