Elaine Seymour is the Director of Ethnography and Evaluation Research for the Bureau of Sociological Research at the University of Colorado. The work of her unit is centered on aspects of change in the education and career paths of undergraduate and graduate science, mathematics, and engineering (SME) majors. She helped to develop The Ethnograph, a computer program widely used in qualitative research. She is currently the co-Evaluator for two NSF consortia for the reform of undergraduate chemistry (shared with Joshua Gutwill, the University of California, Berkeley) focusing on processes of change among students, faculty, and departments. This has led to some cross-initiative work, including origination (with Steve Koscuik) of NISE's FLAG web-site, and the Student Assessment of their Learning Gains (SALG) instrument for student-faculty classroom feedback (available via the FLAG).
