CONWAY—Lynn Burley, associate professor, Department of Writing, has been chosen as one of 13 Scientific Thinking and Integrative Reasoning Skills (STIRS) Scholars by the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) for 2014-2015.
Burley is the only Arkansas professor invited to the STIRS Scholars project.
“Specifically, I will design a student case study that demands scientific reasoning, evidence-based problem solving and must use data-based and statistical reasoning. I also will construct the Facilitator's Guide that will allow anyone in a variety of disciplines to teach this case study. My case is ‘Should English be the Official Language of the United States?’” Burley said.
