Philip Bell delivered the College of Education's Fall Lecture, titled Pathways to Excellence and Equity in Science, Math and Engineering Learning, on Oct. 28, 2008.
"The learning of science and math is a civil rights issue, and schools should give students broad participation in those areas as early as possible," says Philip Bell, a UW associate professor of learning sciences.
Bell directs the ethnographic and design-based research of the Everyday Science and Technology Group. He has a background in human cognition and development, science education, electrical engineering and computer science. He has also developed Web-based learning platforms, designed and studied K-12 science curricula and currently conducts ethnographies of children's learning across social settings.
