“Professor Howard has been the most influential and impactful academic experience I have had at Colby. He does a terrific job of engaging with and relating to his students, as well as allowing them to participate in real educational research as undergraduate students.” -Patrick Stewart

The Researchers

“The more that I have involved students in all aspects of the research project the more that it has convinced me that that’s what I need to be doing. They’ll ask different kinds of questions, they’ll challenge me to think differently about the research project and what I actually need to be doing” -Adam Howard
