The College of Science will present the 2018 F.A. Memorial Gilfillan Lecture and reception on April 5, 2018. This year, Corinne Manogue, a professor of physics, will present a public lecture to the campus and local communities on "Catalyzing the transformation of science learning at OSU."

Dr. Manogue received the 2017 F.A. Gilfillan Award for Distinguished Scholarship in Science for her outstanding scholarship and scientific accomplishments.

In addition to being an outstanding theoretical physicist, Manogue is a teacher and scholar of the highest level as evidenced by her prestigious national and university teaching awards. She is also the leader and driving force behind OSU’s revolutionary Paradigms in Physics Project, which trains undergraduates to think like physicists. Manogue is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the American Association of Physics Teachers.

She has pioneered physics education research for more than 20 years and written numerous articles on ways to help students make the difficult transition from lower-division to upper-division physics. She has trained students and postdoctoral scholars who have gone on to become leaders in physics education research.
