Andrea Burrows is a professor in the School of Teacher Education at the University of Wyoming (UW) in the College of Education (CoE). She was awarded the UW CoE Mary Garland Early Career Fellowship in 2013, the UW CoEd Faculty Award for Outstanding Research and Scholarship in 2015, and the UW CoEd Faculty Award for Outstanding Service to the Education Profession in 2016, the ASTE National Technology Leadership Initiative (NTLI) Award in 2019, the UW CoEd Faculty Award for Outstanding Research and Scholarship in 2019, the ASTE Award IV Innovation in Teaching Science Teachers Award in 2020, and the 2019 Outstanding Reviewer Award for Education Sciences in 2020. She received her EdD in Curriculum and Instruction with Science Specialization from the University of Cincinnati. Before beginning her work in higher education, she taught high school and middle school science for 12 years in Florida and Virginia.
Since beginning at UW, she has been awarded 41 grants ($9.2M) with 25 as PI ($3.3M). Burrows’ research agenda – STEM integration and educational partnerships – is aligned with her grant work. Her research agenda is composed of a unified STEM education partnership structure and connects educational research to real-world practices through in-service teacher professional development and preservice teacher education. The core of her research agenda is to deepen STEM partnership involvement and understanding through STEM discipline integration (often regarded as iSTEM) with in-service teacher professional development and preservice teacher coursework.
Burrows’ current body of published work includes 24 STEM peer-reviewed journal articles, four book chapters, two edited books, and more under review. Her publications appear in leading international journals, such as the Journal of Chemical Education (H index – 57), Journal of Science Education and Technology (H index – 44), and Educational Action Research (H index – 21). In addition, since 2011 she contributed 143 peer-reviewed conference works/presentations. In addition to being CITE Journal Science Education co-editor, she has been elected to AERA SIG chair positions (e.g., AR, CIAE, and STL), as the ASEE PCEE chair, and as an ASTE board member.
Andrea Burrows welcomes your manuscripts that report on technology integration as it applies to science teacher education as well as welcomes new reviewers.
