Currently I have been researching the use of formative evaluation methods in the improvement of teaching. I have also been collaborating in research on student attitudes toward instructional and assessment methods designed to enhance learning.
Current research in my lab is focussed on the influence of UV-B light on conifer seedling growth and physiology. The possible ameliorating effect of elevated CO2 partial pressures on the UV-B responses is also under investigation.
Ongoing studies are examining the role of environmental and nutritional factors on the partitioning of carbohydrates.
Current developments utilizing WWW pages to facilitate teaching and learning may be examined through the following course home pages:
