Dr. Singer's research revolves around supporting current teachers in integrating inquiry-based instructional strategies and technologies. He is involved in several collaborative grant-funded programs, such as UMBC's Teacher Quality programs in Chemistry and Biology programs and the NSF funded INSPIRES program. Dr. Singer supports STEM faculty in adapting their professional development activities in ways that allow teacher participants to effectively apply their newly gained content knowledge and pedagogical skills to their classrooms.
Dr. Singer is the director of the NSF-funded Noyce Scholars Program at UMBC, which is designed to recruit students into STEM education fields. He works with the National Parks Service and the Alice Ferguson Foundation to provide opportunities for Noyce Scholars to work with high school students to conduct environmental science projects at local national parks. He is also working with administrative and faculty colleagues within UMBC to put forth a proposal for re-organizing the secondary science and mathematics certification program by adapting the nationally recognized teacher preparation model developed by the University of Texas (UTeach).
