Lara ApplebyLara Appleby, Ph.D.

Lara is interested in the space, especially in university-level science courses, for students to make sense of things, articulate their thinking, and refine their thinking. She coordinates and studies a professional development program at Tufts, called The Listening Project, which consists of regular meetings of instructors in the natural sciences to practice listening to student thinking and helping each other notice, in students' thinking, the productive beginnings of scientific practice.
