Biography

Eugene Judson has a broad base of experience in science education, educational policy, and school improvement. His research focuses primarily on educational policies and their effects on STEM education in both K-12 and higher education environments. Dr. Judson's research interests are focused on two areas: 1) the relationship between educational policy and STEM education, and 2) the interactions among beliefs, classroom interactions, and learning in STEM classrooms. Recent and ongoing project topics include new ESSA-based state accountability plans and their inclusion of STEM factors; gender-based differences in how engineering faculty are assigned various duties; trends in science and math Advanced Placement (AP) among underrepresented students; evaluating how educators make sense of Next Generation Science Standards; and collaborating with colleagues from the Schools of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to examine the effects of a large-scale professional development program.

Research Interests

Guiding Research Questions:

  • How do formal policies and policies of practice impact STEM classrooms and learning?

Current Research Projects:

Eugene Judson is collaborating with colleagues from the Schools of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to examine the effects of a large-scale professional development program that is focused on student-centered learning in undergraduate engineering classrooms.

Judson is examining how science and math teachers address teaching Advanced Placement (AP) courses differently than regular and honors courses. Related, he is looking at how teachers recruit students to enroll into science and math AP courses and entice them to complete the AP exams.

Judson is also examining how implicit and explicit gender biases may affect assignment of tasks (e.g., research, leadership, service) among faculty in colleges of engineering.
