    Argenta Margaret Price


    BioArgenta Price is a lecturer and teaching and learning specialist in the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability. Prior to joining SDSS, she received her PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from UCSF, then pivoted to be a science education researcher in Carl Wieman’s research group at Stanford for 7 years. She led workshops for faculty members and co-taught a Stanford course about the principles of learning and effective teaching practices. Her research focused on defining the process of solving complex problems and developing better ways to measure and teach the decisions that comprise that process. As a lecturer in SDSS, she is working with Drs. Majumdar and Moler to design their new course, “Decision Making for Sustainable Energy,” in which students will learn to make problem-solving decisions in the context of solving sustainable energy problems at personal, local, and national scales. She will also collaborate with any instructors who are interested in incorporating active learning and inclusive teaching practices, trying innovative assessment methods, measuring the effectiveness of their courses, or developing materials for new courses or topics.
