This paper reports findings from the Economic and Social Research Council-funded InterActive Education Project, in which teachers, researchers and teacher educators have worked together to develop, perform, and evaluate secondary school science department-based ‘Subject Design Initiatives’. Drawing on notions from sociocultural theory, we have focused on ‘cultural tools’ as material and symbolic mediators of learning. In the Subject Design Initiatives teachers are seen as central to lear
Teaching-Learning Environments in Undergraduate Biology: Initial Perspectives and Findings.
The report is in four parts.

Adhesion of protective coating appliques on contaminated aluminum surfaces
The goal of this research was to develop an appliquÃ© system to protect an aluminum surface previously coated with a RTV silicone rubber. The appliquÃ© consisted of a poly (urethane) - based film coated with a suitable adhesive. Two adhesion problems were studied in this project: 1) adhesion to the contaminated aluminum surface, and 2) adhesion to the protective film of the appliquÃ©. Adhesion can occur according to several mechanisms: physical adsorption, chemical bonding, diffusion, elec
Gender Education and Training in Doctoral Level Psychology Programs: An Exploratory Investigation
This doctoral project was an exploratory investigation of the treatment of gender in the education and training of doctoral level psychology graduate students. Fifty-one doctoral level psychology programs, including Ph.D., Psy.D. and Ed.D. programs, were placed into one of three groups based on their orientation, practitioner-oriented program (P-OP), clinical research-oriented program (CR-OP), or combined orientation program (CP). The programs were surveyed by the analysis of their respective we
Preparing Future Leaders: Principals’ Perceptions of the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Conso
Recent high-stakes accountability movements in education have significantly changed the role of the school principal. As the incongruence between principal preparation programs and successful principalships becomes more apparent, it is imperative that principal preparation programs evolve to meet the complex needs of today’s principalship and prepare leaders for tomorrow’s schools. This dissertation study explored the standards-based changes in principal preparation programs in Pennsylvania
The Effect of Active Learning Exercises on Academic Performance and Nonintellectual Learning Factors
The current study examined the effect of an active learning-based teaching method on nonintellectual learning dispositions in students enrolled in general psychology. Expected outcomes included improvement in student nonintellectual learning factors, as well as improvement in student academic performance. Two graduate student instructors and four courses of general psychology were recruited for participation. SAT scores, course grades, student ratings of teachers, and measures of nonintellectual
