Principal Research Interests: 

Gabriela Weaver’s scholarship is in the area of STEM education innovation for the goal of increasing access to higher education and student success. Her work has spanned numerous projects, including: individual innovations in classes, researching how students learn specific concepts using different pedagogies or tools, engaging in curricular reform at the program or department level, providing professional development for K-12 teachers and higher education faculty, researching and supporting institutional-level change, engaging in national-level policy related work, and developing and studying networks for practitioners and researchers of higher education STEM reform. Although her work has progressed across different projects, it has remained within the same sphere and theme, even while its scope has expanded from individual courses to institutions and ultimately communities of practitioners across the nation. She is a Fellow of the AAAS and was a member of the 2019-2020 ACE Fellows cohort.
