When TCU classes went virtual in March, associate professor Hayat Hokayem and doctoral students Savannah Graham and Alex Tolar needed a way to motivate their undergraduate students to learn scientific concepts in an online environment. Without the use of their typically hands-on learning activities in a classroom, they developed a lesson plan on a subject top of mind for most: COVID-19.
The College of Education congratulates all students who are graduating this semester. While we’re unable to gather in person for commencement, hooding and pinning ceremonies in December due to the pandemic, we celebrate the accomplishments of students like Stacy Vasquez, who earned his Ph.D. in Science Education and works as a Professor of Biology at Dallas College. He's passionate about teaching science in a way that addresses students' lived experiences and societal issues.
