Specialty: Science Education
Department(s): STEM Transformation Institute, Teaching and Learning
Remy Dou is a visiting clinical assistant professor with dual appointments in the Department of Teaching and Learning and the STEM Transformation Institute at Florida International University in Miami, Fl. His current research addresses the academic and social experiences of diverse university students taking physics and engineering courses and how those experiences shape factors related to their career decision-making, like interest, identity, anxiety, and self-efficacy. He also spends much of his time investigating faculty change with regard to course design and curriculum adoption. As an instructor, he contributes to the preparation of pre-service STEM teachers, as well as mentors students seeking research experiences in STEM education fields. Prior to his work as a researcher, Remy Dou was selected to the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship through which he served two years at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings. During his fellowship years (2011 – 2013), he worked on projects related to student engagement in STEM, informal STEM learning, and diversity in STEM education, including working with the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a design and evaluation framework for federal STEM intervention programs. This framework contributed to the White House’s Committee on STEM Education in the creation of a five-year Federal STEM education strategic plan. Remy holds a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction, specializing in Physics Education Research and Educational Statistics.
