Design Features for
Section 11 - acknowledgments, bibliography & research participants
to introduction and contents
There are several people I want to recognize for their involvement and support of
this research project. First is Dr. George H. Copa, my major professor, whose
mentorship, insight, and wisdom inspired excellence in learning, process, and product.
Second are the participants who were willing to give their time and energy in pursuing
ways to improve learning, specifically collaborative, project-based learning by
identifying features of the physical learning environment that support and enhance the
learning process. The members of my graduate committee, Drs. Warren Suzuki, Shirley
Anderson, Earl "Joe" Johnson, and Barbara Roth, provided guidance through thoughtful
query and suggestions for improvement.
The staff of Pathworks Design, Corvallis, Oregon, produced the graphical
representations of the designs created by the participants of the study and images
portraying the research process and the interactive graphic illustrating the findings of the
study. I also want to acknowledge the National Research Center for Career and Technical
Education for supporting this research project by granting me a Graduate Student Award.
