Scholars from around the world come to the Kellogg Biological Station to engage in research with our faculty.


Current Visiting Scholars

Karel Jacobs
Associate Professor and Coordinator of Secondary Education
Chicago State University, Dept. of Biology
Sept. 7 - Dec. 5, 2015

Dr. Jacobs will be a sabbatical scholar at KBS during the Fall Semester 2015. During her time here she will be working on projects designed to transform secondary biology (and possibly other STEM) teach preparation programs at CSU so that pre-service students strengthen their science and engineering practice skills through engagement in KBS/LTER ecological research. She is also interested in developing tools that will adapt LTER teaching resources for use in urban Chicago classrooms. Dr. Jacobs is co-PI on two NSF grants exploring ways to recruit and train science teachers to work in urban areas and a pending NASA grant, "Training America's next NASA generation -- Environmental Stewardship of Earth Systems Yields Innovative Approaches to Challenges Posed by Global Change," which involves collaborations with several LTER sites.
