Faculty & staff
Dr. Jim Concannon, Assistant Professor of Education, at Westminster College has been notified by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, publisher of Science magazine, that his published article has been selected as one of the top article of 2012.
Dr. Concannon’s article, “A Reanalysis of Engineering Majors’ Self-Efficacy Beliefs,” was first published in Journal of Science Education and Technology.
The research in the article addresses the obstacles women face in male-dominated majors such as engineering and calls for higher education reform.
“This is the fourth article I have published regarding gender equity in engineering and I am so honored that this one would be selected by Science as one of the best of the year,” says Dr. Concannon.
Dr. Concannon teaches science education methods to Westminster students studying to be elementary, middle school and secondary teachers.
He holds a Ph.D. in learning, teaching and curriculum from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
