Welcome to the CEDAR Lab!
The CEDAR Lab launched in 2021 under the direction of Dr. Stacy Shaw. The CEDAR Lab conducts research on creative and flexible thinking in mathematics, reasoning of complex concepts, and how student experiences shape thinking and learning in STEM education. Our lab uses experimental methods, observational data, learning analytics, and qualitative methodologies in an effort to better understand teaching and learning in STEM subjects.
