Paul Bergeron

Research and Background

Paul Bergeron is a postdoctoral researcher with the 3DL for US group. He is interested in how students engage in 3DL and what we can do to better engage students with this framework for science thinking and doing. Prior to this, he completed his doctorate at the University of Utah in high energy particle phenomenology. While doing research in particle physics, most of this time was split with teaching, first as an LA during his undergrad and then in graduate school as a lead instructional team TA, adjunct lecturer at a community college, and instructor for a continuing education course in astronomy. His current research is focused on understanding student engagement in the Scientific Practice of Using and Constructing Models and how the members of the STEM Teaching and Learning Fellowship engage with both the 3D-LAP and 3D-LOP.
