Gregory W. Shrader

Research Assistant Professor


Greg Shrader's research has focused on the design of on-line environments to support teacher learning. Current project include the National Science Foundation sponsored Living Curriculum Project as well as the DOE funded Illinois Professional Learners' Partnership (IPLP). The Living Curriculum is designed to support teachers' learning to implement project-based science by indexing video based examples of teaching and learning to project-based science curricula. Dr. Shrader's IPLP research focuses on the use of similar video cases to support learning for pre-service teachers.
