Dr. Hilda Borko’s research explores 1) the process of learning to teach with an emphasis on changes in teachers’ knowledge, beliefs about teaching and learning, and classroom practices as they participate in professional-development programs; 2) learning to lead professional development, and 3) the measurement of instructional practices. Within CSET, Professor Borko directs the Problem-Solving Cycle (PSC) project, which works with middle-school math leaders in San Francisco, and is a Co-Principal Investigator on a National Science Foundation-funded project aimed at field testing the PSC professional-development model and devising approaches to the preparation of math leaders. Professor Borko is also a Co-Principal Investigator on a project funded by the William T. Grant Foundation and the Spencer Foundation entitled “Quality Assessment in Science.” She holds a BA in Psychology, an MA in the Philosophy of Education, and a PhD in Educational Psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles.
