Education and Cognition
The Geocognition Lab examines how people perceive and understand the Earth and its history. Professor Libarkin is a leader in geocognition research, whose work includes novel approaches to research on visual representation, discourse, and reasoning through analogs.
Other faculty in this area are active participants in local, state, and national science education organizations who provide professional development for science teachers in Michigan and nationally and informal science education opportunities to the lay public in Michigan and elsewhere (see "Outreach" page).
