Principal Investigator:

This project explores students learning about viral epidemics while engaging in scientific modeling. Given the multi-dimensional nature of complex issues, using different types of models is critical for robust learning about issues like pandemics. We focus on how learners coordinate sense-making across different models. Project goals include: 1) Promote learning about viral epidemics through modeling. 2) Research learning about viral epidemics and optimal ways to support student engagement with different types of models.
