Description

The JSMF program focus on supporting research that builds from a cognitive science perspective on teachers as learners – including a focus on the aspects of cognition (e.g., memory, effort, prior knowledge, motivations, goals, expertise, collaboration and others) that guide teacher thinking and change in attitudes, knowledge, skills and the adoption of evidence­-based practices in classroom contexts. In particular JSMF is interested in research that can be characterized as useable, needs­-driven education research that identifies malleable factors that influence the developmental changes occurring as teachers introduce evidence­-based knowledge into their professional practice.
