WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College senior psychology major Dan Follmer recently participated in the "Undergraduate Research at the Capitol" in Harrisburg, Pa. The title of his poster was "Evaluation of Preferred Teaching Strategies: College Student Perceptions of the Impact of Specific Teaching Strategies on Learning, Class Performance and Motivation." Follmer conducted his research with Dr. Susan Beery, assistant professor of psychology.

During the event, Sen. Gene Yaw (23rd District), a 1970 Lycoming graduate, visited with Follmer to learn more about his research. Dr. David Dunbar, who earned a biology degree from Lycoming in 1987, was a co-chair of the event. He is an associate professor of biology at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa.

The purpose of Undergraduate Research at the Capitol is to bring together college students, faculty and Pennsylvania legislators to share the experiences of students engaged in research or scholarship at their colleges and universities.
