    • Biography

      Dr. Andrea M. Karkowski has expertise in learning and comparative psychology. Her current research interests include student learning and the development of metacognitive strategies — the process by which learners (particularly at the college level) choose the right strategy to accomplish a task, solve a problem, and change strategies if needed.

      Dr. Karkowski regularly teaches research-intensive courses that help students discover the delight and satisfaction of conducting their own empirical research. She also teaches a bystander intervention class in which students learn the skills and strategies to stand up for themselves and others and work to create a better, prosocial world. In addition to her teaching, advising, and research, Dr. Karkowski is the faculty editor for Epistimi, Capital University's Undergraduate Research Journal.
