Center for Research on College Science Teaching and Learning
Michigan State University’s Center for Research on College Science Teaching and Learning (CRCSTL) promotes MSU science faculty’s involvement in research on instructional design, implementation and assessment of student learning outcomes in college science. The goal of this research is to establish national and internationally recognized leadership in research on college students’ learning of science.
We have a core group of well-funded science educators and natural scientists collaborating together on a variety of projects to improve science education.
We will take a national leadership role by establishing a cross-college CRCSTL.
The Center, composed of faculty and graduate students from CNS, COE, CANR and other MSU colleges, emphasizes applied research on how and what college science students learn.
The Center provides an intellectual meeting place where support and encouragement of both the art and the science of teaching and learning is emphasized.
