With Prof. Mark Aulls I am the co-lead investigator in the High Ability and Inquiry Research (HAIR) Group, a team of six professors from three universities and over a dozen students, mostly PhD, but also MA and MEd plus occasional undergraduates from Education, Psychology, and other fields. We meet several times a year and visitors are welcome. Our current research focus is on evaluating the outcomes of inquiry-based instruction and on preparing teachers for inquiry instruction. Students with an interest in giftedness or gifted education, especially in relation to our inquiry foci, are also active in the team.
