Scholars in Residence
Katherine Morrison, Ph.D. in Mathematics, completed her degree at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and has recently joined the faculty of the School of Mathematical Sciences.
Her research is in coding theory, i.e. the study of methods for efficiently and accurately transmitting information when errors are likely to occur in that transmission. Her interest in educational issues began as a graduate student when she became involved in a number of outreach programs providing mathematics content-based professional development for in-service K-12 teachers through the UNL Mathematics Department and the Center for Science, Mathematics, and Computer Education.
Past Scholars in Residence
Linda Lorh, Ed.D. 2007 - 2008
Review of cognitive load theory, 4-steps, sizing up the learner, stating the outcome, making it happen and knowing what the learner knows by Dr. Linda Lohr.
Robert Powers, Ed.D. 2008 - 2009
Experiment focused on how to teach from your own teaching and how to capture your experience to share with other teachers.
Dianna Gray, Ph.D. 2009 - 2011
The formal study of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), also known as evidence based teaching/learning, can serve as a springboard for improving teaching as well as providing research and publication opportunities (just think about how many times colleagues have asked you for some of your teaching ideas or material).

Project NExT: New Experiences in Teaching
Gulden Karakok, Ph.D. 2011 - 2012
This professional development program is for new or recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences. It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, and participating in professional activities. It also provides the participants with a network of peers and mentors as they assume these responsibilities.
