Professor Richland was recently awarded a new grant from the National Science Foundation, entitled: An Instructional Complexity Approach to the Science of Learning by Analogy. The proposal is collaborative with Bryan Matlan, at WestEd.
The project has the potential for broad impact on mathematics teaching as well as on research in the science of learning. The project takes an innovative approach to shifting the focus of theory driven research to incorporate complexity without losing rigor, making learning theory better able to explain and inform teaching practice within the complexity of everyday classrooms. A broad dissemination plan for best practices of analogy instruction is in place.
