E Dale Broder
I use authentic science experiences in the classroom, in mentoring, and in community engagement in order to increase understanding of the scientific process as a way of knowing, increase scientific self-efficacy, and increase interest in pursuing STEM. A focus on diversity and inclusion is a fundamental piece of my teaching, research, and outreach. My research spans the fields of evolution, animal behavior, science education, conservation, and fisheries ecology. I use both field and laboratory approaches, work with multiple study systems, and collaborate with incredibly talented critical thinkers at all levels including K-12 teachers, undergraduates, agency scientists, graduate students, and faculty.
