Dr. Andrade joined the faculty of the Division of Educational Psychology and Methodology in the Fall of 2002. She came to UAlbany after three years at Ohio University. Prior to taking a position at OU, she spent eleven years at Harvard University, where she earned her masters and doctoral degrees and worked on a variety of teaching, research, and development initiatives at Harvard Project Zero. Her work focuses on the relationships between thinking, learning, and assessment, with an emphasis on student self-assessment. Dr. Andrade has designed thinking-centered instruction and assessments for classrooms, after-school programs, children's television shows, and CD-ROMs. She has written numerous articles, including an award-winning article for Educational Leadership (1997), and has co-authored two books: Teaching through projects: Creating effective learning environments (1995) and Thinking connections: Learning to think and thinking to learn (1994).
