Dr. Tim Slater holds the University of Wyoming Excellence in Higher Education Endowed Chair of Science Education. Along with his wife and his graduate students at the CAPER Center for Astronomy & Physics Education Research, he conducts fundamental research on how students learn science. He is the author of ten books, including a highly popular astronomy book for college students, and more than 100 scholarly research articles.
Dr. Slater frequently serves as a lecturing ship's scientist on cruise ships providing enthusiastic insights into the cultural connections between science, technology and society. Well respected in his field, he has served on the Board of Directors for the American Astronomical Society, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the Society of College Science Teachers, and the National Science Teachers Association. He is a highly sought after conference keynote speaker on both the nature of science and the science of teaching.
