Nersessian on How Scientists Think

External News Details

"We investigate cognitive practices in interdisciplinary engineering science labs, what is required to learn these, and what factors in the "learning ecology" of the labs support and sustain creative research," says Nancy Nersessian, professor in the School of Public Policy and School of Interactive Computing. Nersessian is referring to the "translational model of learning research" that she and Wendy Newstetter, a professor in Georgia Tech's Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, have designed together. In this Live Science exclusive interview, Nersessian continues, "Along with science and engineering faculty, we develop ways of translating these into instructional settings so as to promote learning."
