Designing Scaffolds to Support Student Learning

Dr. Jaime Sabel, Assistant Professor in Biological Sciences at the University of Memphis, will present the new FRAMER framework she developed for creating tools to support students in their courses. She will also provide examples in her own work of the types of tools she has created and results of studies to examine their effectiveness. Participants will have the opportunity to consider areas in their own classes where students need more support to learn a concept or a task. Dr. Sabel will provide guidance on how to identify areas that may need support and then how to develop the tools to address the issue.

Her research focuses on the effective use of various types of tools and classroom learning environments that can support undergraduate students in learning biology. She teaches both undergraduate biology courses and graduate science college teaching courses.
