  • A record of publishing in peer-reviewed science education and technology integration practitioner and/or research journals.
  • Prior experience as a reviewer (i.e., research journals, grants, or other scholarly works)
  • Expertise in teacher education (pre-service, induction, or in-service). Areas of specialization in these domains can include curriculum development, technology, or informal settings.
