Jayson Nissen

Nissen Education Research and Design
I have my own research company and am occasionally a physics instructor at Oregon State University. I have worked with Learning Assistants (LAs) and conducted research on the efficacy and impacts of the LA model nationally. I use quantitative methods and a critical framework to investigate racism, sexism, and classism in college science classrooms through the analyses of large datasets. My current work creates resources to support STEM instructors at Hispanic serving institutions to develop, disseminate, and use evidence based instructional strategies that support equity in their classrooms. My prior work has used the Experience Sampling Method to investigate gender differences in students’ affective experiences in physics courses with and without LAs. I am a coleader of the Physics Education Research Working Group on Statistics, which runs annual workshops on statistics; and an organizer of the PER Review Network, which supports junior scientists in conducting effective peer review.
