In the upcoming Springer book, Active Learning in College Science: The Case for Evidence-Based Practice, Henderson again promotes the affordances of digital technologies to make argumentation more frequent and more critical in science classrooms. Henderson presented at five different national and international science education research conferences in 2019, as well as having five first-author articles accepted for publication in the year. This includes a sole author piece in the Harvard Educational Review. Henderson was elected in 2019 to serve as Program Chair of the AERA Science Teaching and Learning SIG, where he has organized the science education portion of the conference program for the upcoming 2020 AERA meeting in San Francisco.

They also document that subjective performance ratings contain important information about teacher effectiveness.

Along with Kendra Bischoff (Postdoctoral 2016) (Cornell University), Owens recently published a co-authored article in Demography. Bischoff and Owens use multiple data sources on school districts in the U.S. to provide a rich longitudinal portrait of the social and financial resources available in high- and low-income students’ school districts from 1990 to 2014. They demonstrate how income segregation exacerbates social resource gaps between high- and low-income students (using more nuanced student income data than prior research), while school finance reform has been fairly effective in reducing per-pupil funding inequalities due to segregation between school districts, though funding is likely not sufficiently compensatory.
Aaron M. Pallas (Postdoctoral 1988) and Anna Neumann (NAEd member) have just published Convergent Teaching: Tools to Spark Deeper Learning in College (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2019). The book draws on research on K-12 teaching and learning to develop the concept of convergent teaching, and illustrates its three key principles of targeting, surfacing and navigating. In arguing for the centrality of teaching to the mission of higher education, the authors consider how campus leaders, policymakers, and foundation leaders can support college teaching improvement.
