Center for Advancing STEM Teaching, Learning and Evaluation (CASTLE)

The SMERC group at RIT is a multidisciplinary group of Discipline Based Education Research (DBER) investigators, including individuals who study biology education, physics education, chemistry education, engineering education, and science/math communication. DBER focuses on how students learn the STEM disciplines and become scientists. DBER practitioners are involved in inquiry-based scholarship that brings together deep knowledge of the sciences and scientific practices with cognitive psychology and pedagogical theory.
