Keyword: Advanced technologies in education

Daniel Grunspan

My research background is on biology education, evolutionary medicine, and biocultural anthropology. Some of the themes I work on are: 1) student network formation in undergraduate classrooms and their impacts on learning; 2) the evolution of human social learning; and, 3) equity and biases in STEM and academic biology.

I conduct research along three axes:
1) Education for an uncertain future: Our research program is designed to serve at the leading edge of scholarship in experiential and transdisciplinary education. It is driven by the existing evidence base in pedagogical best practice, in partnership with community need. We conduct both fundament and applied research at many levels of organisation (from a single lesson to a complete degree program).
2) Biomimetics - Acesing natural innovations: Biomimetics refers to a specific case of knowledge translation and transfer; from biology to, usually, engineering. Nature is overflowing with inspiring solutions to the world's most wicked problems. Some times those solutions are more sustainable than what we are currently doing. We work to understand how knowledge is successfully accessed and how biology is taught to non-specialists.
3) Environmental ecology - Systems approaches to study ecological systems: Seabirds behavioural ecology can provide meaningful research into both fundamental and applied questions. We study fundamental questions related to mate selection and nest energy dynamics and applied questions related to detecting large ocean regime changes though DNA metabarcoding. We are also currently diving into research on the distribution and quality of Personal Protective Equipment litter in metropolitan areas.
