Chuck Hodges, Ph.D.

Charles Hodges, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Leadership, Technology, and Human Development, was recently published in the Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education journal for research that resulted from work completed with a Georgia Institute of Technology, National Science Foundation funded project. The article, entitled “Teacher Self-Efficacy During the Implementation of a Problem-Based Science Curriculum,” reports on a study in which eighth-grade science teachers were introduced to a new, problem-based science curriculum using robotics. The study examined the teachers’ self-efficacy during the implementation and reported high confidence levels for teachers throughout the study. 

Co-authors include Jessica Gale of Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern University alumna Alicia Meng (M.Ed. School Psychology, 2013 and Ed.S. School Psychology, 2014). Meng was funded to work on the project for an additional two years.
