Expertise: My research focuses primarily on theorizing the nature of short- and long-term interests in STEM disciplines, and designing learning environments that are truly engaging to students.

Andrew C Butler

Andrew C Butler

Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, College of Education
andrewbutler@austin.utexas.edu
+1 512 471 0546

Expertise: Dr. Butler is interested in the malleability of memory - the cognitive processes and mechanisms that cause memories to change or remain stable over time. More specifically, his research focuses on how the process of retrieving memories affects the content (e.g., events, specific details, narrative structure, etc.) and phenomenological characteristics (e.g., confidence, emotional intensity, vividness, etc.) of those memories. Retrieval is often viewed as a neutral event in which the contents of memory are assessed but left unchanged. However, a large body of research has shown that retrieval actually modifies memory. His program of research addresses both theoretical issues in cognitive psychology and practical applications to education and mental health. The broad aim of this research program is to gain a better understanding of how retrieval affects: memories held by individuals and those shared by groups (i.e. collective memories); memories for simple materials (e.g., word lists, facts, etc.) to more complex memories that are rich in sensory detail, emotion, and self-relevance, among other characteristics; and newly formed, episodic memories in contrast to well-learned semantic memories that have been integrated into the knowledge base.

His research team continues to explore data collected by the Research Consortium of Counseling Centers in Higher Education, where it has received survey responses from over 26,000 participants representing 70 U.S. colleges and universities, establishing the largest dataset of in-depth college student suicidal behavior. These results will be used to find ways to help this population enhance resilience, decrease personal vulnerabilities, minimize encounters with traumatic events and, ultimately, fortify student's resistance to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

Expertise: Dr. Jowers directs two major grant projects, including the Texas Initiatives for Children's Activity & Nutrition (I-CAN!) project, and the Walk Texas! Project. Texas I-CAN! is an obesity prevention project that aims to increase both physical activity and healthy eating in elementary school children. This project is currently funded through the National Institutes of Health/ Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center for Child Development.The goal is to train elementary school teachers to incorporate physical activity into their academic lessons daily and to evaluate the corresponding physical activity changes and academic impact on the participating children. This is a 5-year project that will recruit 30 elementary schools within Central Texas. Dr. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System &#40;PMATS&#41;, for the Texas Department of State and Health Services. This system tracks clinical outcomes across various programs (physical activity, nutrition, diabetes self management) to determine the impact of the programs on diabetes prevention and control across the state of Texas.

Expertise: Dr. Tiffany Whittaker's principal methodological research interest deals with the various facets of model specification, including, but not limited to, model comparison/selection and model modification methods. With the use of simulation techniques, she examines the performance of these different model specification approaches under manipulated conditions. With the use of real data sets, she also provides illustrations and demonstrations of alternative model parameterizations for pedagogical purposes. There are numerous models that may be employed to explain the relationships among variables. Dr. Whittaker is interested in employing models within the structural equation modeling (SEM), multilevel modeling (MLM), and item response theory (IRT) arenas. Dr. Whittaker's other research interest deals with real-world data applications with these various modeling techniques. This is, in large part, due to requests from applied researchers to help with the methodological aspects of their study given her knowledge in quantitative methods. Dr. Whittaker enjoys these opportunities to collaborate with researchers in different disciplines, as real-world data issues provide her with methodological research ideas as well as interesting examples to use in her courses when she is teaching.
