Professor Koolage specializes in general and feminist philosophy of science and in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The central focus of his work is the epistemology of scientific theories, research programs, and communities. His connection to the sciences is mainly through psychology and cognitive science. His scholarship of teaching and learning is primarily directed at non-traditional learning activities and (general) assessment practices.
His teaching interests are broad, but he especially enjoys teaching general philosophy of science, philosophy of the life sciences, and introduction to philosophy. He also enjoys any and all opportunities to introduce students to philosophy and philosophical thinking.
