Christopher Bogiages is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Instruction and Teacher Education at the University of South Carolina. His primary responsibilities include teaching a sequence of courses on Action Research in the Online Doctor of Education Degree Program (Ed.D) in Curriculum and Instruction, Curriculum Studies and advising doctoral students as they progress in their Action Research based Dissertation in Practice (DiP). Bogiages joined the University faculty in January of 2017. After graduating from Coastal Carolina University in 2001 with a BS in Biology, he began his career in education as a high school biology teacher. After a ten year career in the secondary science classroom, earning National Board Certification and a Masters in Education, Christopher began working with the Knowles Teacher Initiative supporting multiple cohorts of early career math and science teachers through professional development and mentoring. While with Knowles, he completed his doctoral program at the University of South Carolina, earning a Ph.D. in Secondary Education. His research focused on how teachers take up and implement scientific modeling as an instructional approach in the middle and secondary science classroom. Given his current role as an online, higher education instructor, he hopes to develop new lines of research around effective online graduate level instruction. Bogiages is particularly interested in how the development of community among online learners impacts learning and progress in graduate studies.
