Andrew C Butler

Andrew C Butler

Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, College of Education
andrewbutler@austin.utexas.edu

Expertise: Imagine the following scenarios: a student who is building an understanding of physics by working practice problems, an educator who is trying to correct student misconceptions about evolution, and a traveler who has recently returned from Paris telling friends about the trip of a lifetime. The common thread connecting these examples is that the memories of the individuals described are changing through their actions. Dr. Butler is interested in the malleability of memory – the cognitive processes and mechanisms that cause memories to change or remain stable over time. More specifically, his research focuses on how the process of retrieving memories affects the content (e.g., events, specific details, narrative structure, etc.) and phenomenological characteristics (e.g., confidence, emotional intensity, vividness, etc.) of those memories. Retrieval is often viewed as a neutral event in which the contents of memory are assessed but left unchanged. However, a large body of research has shown that retrieval actually modifies memory. His program of research addresses both theoretical issues in cognitive psychology and practical applications to education and mental health. The broad aim of this research program is to gain a better understanding of how retrieval affects: memories held by individuals and those shared by groups (i.e. collective memories); memories for simple materials (e.g., word lists, facts, etc.) to more complex memories that are rich in sensory detail, emotion, and self-relevance, among other characteristics; and newly formed, episodic memories in contrast to well-learned semantic memories that have been integrated into the knowledge base.

Expertise: Jessica’ overarching research goal is to redirect and re-conceptualize research and instructional practice in mathematics such that students with LD can grow their conceptual knowledge. Two primary focal areas within this goal are a) documenting initial or informal conceptual understandings of children labeled as LD within a targeted mathematical area (i.e., rational numbers) and b) understanding how growth of conceptual knowledge occurs in the targeted area and can be nurtured through the learning process. A natural and essential extension of this work includes a secondary focal area concerning c) instructional practices special educators use to facilitate children’s learning of mathematics and, more holistically, how educators can be supported to improve their teaching.

Expertise: Dr. Jowers directs two major grant projects, including the Texas Initiatives for Children’s Activity & Nutrition (I-CAN!) project, and the Walk Texas! Project. Texas I-CAN! is an obesity prevention project that aims to increase both physical activity and healthy eating in elementary school children. This project is currently funded through the National Institutes of Health/ Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center for Child Development.The goal is to train elementary school teachers to incorporate physical activity into their academic lessons daily and to evaluate the corresponding physical activity changes and academic impact on the participating children. This is a 5-year project that will recruit 30 elementary schools within Central Texas. Dr. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System (PMATS), for the Texas Department of State and Health Services. This system tracks clinical outcomes across various programs (physical activity, nutrition, diabetes self management) to determine the impact of the programs on diabetes prevention and control across the state of Texas.

Expertise: Dr. Neff’s research links self-compassion to mental health. She has successfully differentiated the construct of self-compassion from self-esteem. This line of research is highly cross disciplinary, drawing from fields of social and personality psychology, developmental psychology, and clinical psychology. Recently, Dr. Neff developed an eight-week program designed to teach self-compassion skills called "Mindful Self-Compassion." The effectiveness of the program is being evaluated using a wait-list control design. Following her doctoral training in the area of moral development and her postdoctoral training in the area of self-concept development, Dr. Neff’s research has focused on defining, measuring, and developing an intervention to teach self-compassion. According to Dr. Neff’s model, self-compassion involves showing kindness to oneself when experiencing suffering, framing one’s experience of imperfection in light of the shared human experience, and mindful awareness of negative thoughts and emotions. Dr. Neff was the first scholar to introduce the construct of self-compassion into the research literature. She operationalized the construct and created a scale by which it is measured.

Expertise: Dr. Erika Patall primarily examines how motivation can be supported from numerous perspectives, including self-determination theory, decision-making theories, achievement goal theory, expectancy-value theory, and situational interest, among others. To address these issues, Dr. Patall uses various research methodologies, including meta-analysis, cross-sectional and longitudinal survey research, experience sampling, and experiments in both laboratory and natural settings. As a second related line of research, Dr. Patall is interested in individual differences in motivation and academic achievement and underachievement. In particular, she is interested in how students’ beliefs and feelings about their academic “potential” relate to motivation related constructs, as well as how such beliefs develop and can be used to explain academic underachievement. To address these questions, she conducts research syntheses on motivational predictors of achievement or underachievement. Dr. Patall recently developed and validated a scale assessing feelings and beliefs about academic “potential.”

+1 512 471 0368

Expertise: My research interests to date have comprised general areas of constructivist theory, including aspects of the cognitive construction of attachment and the role of identity in diverse populations. This has led to an appointment as Associate Director for the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies over the past 2 years. I have also published in the area of psychological assessment, mostly in an effort to stay current with my teaching expertise in assessment and forensic evaluation. Combining my interest in diversity identity and forensic evaluation, I have been working on a book project about two women who exposed a Federal Judge in Galveston for sexually harassing them. This led to an FBI investigation, Congressional hearings and his conviction on federal charges. He served 4 years in prison. The book project looks at these two women and the role of their personal histories in determining the path each took in dealing with the harassment and having the courage to come forward. From this story comes an interest in civic duty (both because these women were federal employees and the duty they felt to come forward and report their harassment) and an interest in political psychology. With the generous help of Sharon Jarvis from the Department of Communications, we are currently working on projects exploring the ways in which attachment predicts political affiliation and how this may or may not be mediated by news media consumption. We are ultimately interested in how this extends to voting and civic participation.

Expertise: My principal methodological research interest deals with the various facets of model specification, including, but not limited to, model comparison/selection and model modification methods. With the use of simulation techniques, I examine the performance of these different model specification approaches under manipulated conditions. With the use of real data sets, I also provide illustrations and demonstrations of alternative model parameterizations for pedagogical purposes. There are numerous models that may be employed to explain the relationships among variables. I am interested in employing models within the structural equation modeling (SEM), multilevel modeling (MLM), and item response theory (IRT) arenas. My other research interest deals with real-world data applications with these various modeling techniques. This is, in large part, due to requests from applied researchers to help with the methodological aspects of their study given my knowledge in quantitative methods. I enjoy these opportunities to collaborate with researchers in different disciplines because real-world data issues provide me with methodological research ideas as well as interesting examples to use in my courses when I am teaching.
