Grant: Gwen Marchand

Gwen Marchand (Educational Psychology & Higher Education) was awarded $964,236 from the National Science Foundation for a grant entitled “Supporting & Sustaining Student Motivation in Science Instruction.” Science teachers identify fostering student motivation to learn as a pressing need, yet teacher professional learning programs rarely devote time to helping teachers understand and apply motivational principles in their instruction. This project will bring together a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and science teachers to identify a set of practices that science teachers can readily incorporate into their planning and instruction.
