-Scientific inquiry in childhood
-Metacognition and learning in adolescence and young adulthood
Dr. Colleen Stevenson teaches courses in developmental psychology, cognition, and various Topics and Readings courses.
Her research interests include understanding how young children develop their lexicon. For example, how do they understand whether a new label maps on to an object? She is also interested in how adolescents and young adults study, how those behaviors are related to learning, and how we can improve study habits to improve learning. Muskingum University students have opportunities to work on research projects with her.
She works with a number of different groups in the community that serve children and adolescents. Muskingum University students can complete practicum and internships with these groups.
