Science Education
PhD, Curriculum and Instruction (Science Education - Physics)
University of Maryland - College Park, 2012

Tiffany-Rose Sikorski is an Assistant Professor in secondary science education. She is a licensed physics educator who has taught in public and charter high schools, in afterschool and museum settings, and in university-based teacher preparation programs. Her pedagogy courses aim to empower future teachers to create meaningful science learning experiences for their students, experiences that build on students’ vast capabilities for making sense of the natural world and that sustain student interest and participation over time. Dr. Sikorski’s research explores how learners of all ages think, reason, and talk science. She specializes in analyzing “coherence seeking”, that is, learners’ collaborative efforts to build relationships between ideas and identify and reconcile inconsistencies. Her current work continues to expand the coherence seeking framework so that it can inform the design of assessments, curriculum, and learning progressions aimed at supporting scientific inquiry and disciplinary practices of science. Dr. Sikorski co-PIs the currently active research project Building Capacity for Disciplinary Experts in Math and Science Teaching (National Science Foundation) and The GW Learning Assistant Program (GW Columbian College of Arts and Sciences).
