University of Wyoming Professor Andrea Burrows has been elected to serve as president of the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE) in 2023. The organization is a leading voice in conversations about science teacher education research, policy and practice.
Burrows, who also is an associate dean in the College of Education, will work with current ASTE President Rommel Miranda, a professor at Towson University, before assuming her presidency in January 2023. Burrows aims to lead with a collaborative spirit and ensure transparency in decision-making.
“As the next ASTE president, I will shape and improve science teacher education with attention to diversity, equity and inclusion; by highlighting the importance of supporting educational researchers for science education; and by being a voice for this organization’s respected researchers through policy and practice,” Burrows says.
She has been involved with ASTE for 14 years and previously served as board director-at-large (2018-2021), including leading the Professional Development Committee and the Conference Planning Committee; serving as co-editor of Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Journal’s Science Section (2016-present); serving as a Journal of Science Teacher Education (JSTE) and International Society for Technology in Education editorial review board member; and serving as associate editor for JSTE.
Burrows will bring leadership experience from previous roles with the American Educational Research Association, American Society for Engineering Education, and Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education.
She was named a recipient of ASTE’s National Technology Leadership Initiative Fellowship (2019), Award 4 (2020) and Award 1 (2021). These awards helped support and expand her research that focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics integration.
