About the Center

The UGA SEER (Scientists Engaged in Education Research) Center facilitates cutting-edge research in the field of STEM education through multi-disciplinary interactions and research collaborations between a community of scientists from different colleges and departments and the medical partnership. Research areas include basic research, which is grounded within STEM disciplines and informed by evidence-based theory in education and social sciences, and applied research, which provides evidence-based approaches for transforming teaching and learning at colleges and universities. Insights from Center research create potential change agents to transform how sciences are taught and learned, not only at UGA but also at other universities and colleges across the US.
