Rob’s research and teaching focuses on the intersection of science and engineering by investigating how design-based learning environments engage students in approximations of the epistemic practices of scientists and engineers. At Southern Methodist University, Rob supervises first-year teachers and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education; differentiated instruction in secondary science; and designing and making.
