Benjamin Lowell


Benjamin R. Lowell is a doctoral candidate in curriculum and instruction at Boston College. His research focuses on how teachers learn to teach science as a process of figuring out the natural world rather than a set of facts to be memorized. He is interested in professional development and preservice teacher education that supports teachers in shifting their vision of science instruction. Before beginning his doctoral work, he was a high school chemistry and environmental science teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he also served as department chair and one of the leaders of districtwide professional development.
