BioVoyage Institute is developing and implementing
Bioscience) education programs for the 21st Century
learners. The programs are innovative; challenging;
fulfilling; and enriching the lives of our present and
future generation. Now, we seek your participation in
furthering the development of K12 and university curricula.
You maybe active or retired teachers, professors; doctoral
or postdoctoral students.
We have several upcoming and ongoing mathematics and
Kindergarten thru high school science research projects.
The projects support research that utilize cognitive
science to develop and test innovative approaches intended
to improve teaching and learning in authentic education
settings. We are interested in the development of
strategies and materials that involve students learning
educationally meaningful or relevant components or units of
academic content, such as would be covered in a chapter or
multiple chapters addressing a topic or learning goal in a
textbook. Likewise, the projects are designed to explore
the cognitive processes underlying the acquisition of
reading, writing, mathematics knowledge and skills, science
knowledge and skills, or general study skills.
The objective here is to gain a better understanding of
which processes and skills are predictive of subsequent
proficiency in reading, writing, mathematics, science, or
study skills that would allow researchers to develop
interventions (e.g., curricula or instructional approaches)
that target these processes and ultimately result in
improving academic achievement.
We seek candidates with research experience in mathematics
or science or education or any combination thereof to
become the Principal Investigator for projects. You maybe
active or retired professor, doctoral, postdoctoral, etc
