The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University (ANS) Women in Natural Sciences (WINS) is a 39-year old program that has served over 900 underrepresented Philadelphia girls since its inception in 1982. This free after-school and summer program provides hands-on science opportunities, positive youth development activities, and career and college exploration, introducing participants to careers in science and related professions. A Narrative Analysis of the Long-term Impacts of The Academy of Natural Sciences’ Women in Natural Science (WINS) Program pilot study aims to conduct a narrative analysis of the long-term impacts of the Academy of Natural Sciences’ Women in Natural Sciences (WINS) program on the lived experiences and life stories of its alumnae. By taking a narrative approach, this study seeks to discover the ecological aspects of the program that intersect with other ecological parts of the alumnae’s life experiences. Specifically, how their participation influenced their identity construction, career trajectories, socio-economic status, and family outcomes. On a national level, there are limited studies that explore the long-term life impacts of minoritized women in informal STEM programs (Chiu, Price, & Ovahim, 2015), and thus this pilot study could fill a very much needed gap in the existing literature.

Transitioning to Remote and Online Teaching During COVID-19

Research Team:
  • Kristy Kelly (PI), Drexel University
  • Kathlyn Elliott (Co-PI), Drexel University
  • Yiyun (Kate) Fan, (Co-PI), Drexel University
  • Katie Mathew (Co-PI), Drexel University
The purpose of this research is to understand the experiences of teachers involved in moving to online teaching during the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Via a mixed-methods research design, this study specifically aims to answer the following questions:
  1. How do educators navigate the challenges of transitioning to online teaching during a crisis?
  2. What resources do educators draw on - professionally and personally - in the process of transitioning?
  3. What do educators learn in the process and how does this affect their long-term understandings of teaching and learning?
The end goal is to understand how educators experience the move to online teaching in the context of crisis. We are particularly interested in the process of transitioning to online, how educators adapt professionally and personally, what challenges they experience, and the strategies they devise to overcome them. We are also interested in learning about how educators measure success and what they learn along the way. Findings may also be of interest to others making similar transitions.
