The Lewandowski Group studies how students obtain experimental research skills in the context of instructional labs and undergraduate research experiences. We do this though both quantitative and qualitative methods looking at topics such as modeling in labs, student epistemology and project ownership, the impact of a lab transformation on student reasoning surrounding measurement uncertainty, student communication through writing during labs, lab skills essential for the quantum workforce, and changes in lab instruction during the pandemic. See the topics below to learn more about each of these research areas.
