Classroom Interactions Project Based Instruction Points of Interest Dr Petrosino helped develop and teaches courses in the UTeach Natural Sciences secondary certification program and also in the graduate program in Science and Mathematics education His research focuses on children s and teachers scientific and mathematical reasoning in the context of schooling with an emphasis on activities and tools for developing thought There are two major strands to this program The first focuses on the creation and study of learning environments that foster the development and growth of experimentation and inquiry in the elementary and middle school grades A second strand of research connected to the first focuses on investigating the opportunities for model based reasoning the ability to construct and articulate explanations of observable phenomena that occur in typical science classrooms as students move conceptually from intuitive everyday understanding to more formalized scientific understanding Within both strands he has designed and helped develop a number of Internet based tools for teachers and students with attention to the role that such tools play in fostering communities of learners Before joining the faculty at The University of Texas Dr Petrosino was a Postdoctoral Fellow at The National Center For Improving Student Learning and Achievement in Mathematics and Science NCISLA at the University of Wisconsin Dr Petrosino s doctoral work was completed at Vanderbilt University under the guidance of John Bransford While at Vanderbilt he was an active member of the Learning Technology Center His Master s was done at Teachers College Columbia University He is also a certified K 12 Science teacher and administrator with 8 years of experience Dr Petrosino is the author or co author of over 20 peer reviewed journal articles in publications such as American Educational Research Journal Mathematical Thinking and Learning Journal of Science Education and Technology and The Journal of the Learning Sciences 60 national and international research based conference presentations 13 book chapters and numerous invited presentations He was
