My scholarship converges the disciplines of educational technology, human computer interaction, and learning sciences to answer complex problems in today’s learning environments.  My research aims to establish effective strategies for the design of mobile, online, and flexible learning environments in teacher education, engineering education, and STEM learning contexts.

Research Themes

  • Multimodal investigation of technology enhanced learning environments: The new wave of technological innovations such as wearable sensors and eye trackers enable educational researchers combine data from physical classroom activities and physiological responses with more traditional educational data. My recent research uses multimodal methods for developing and tracking teacher knowledge and behavior in technology enhanced STEM and engineering classrooms.
  • Design, development, and evaluation of online learning: My recent work on online learning and teaching focuses on the implementation of open pedagogy as an approach to empower learners in the co-creation of the course content and help them contribute to the body of knowledge they learn.
  • Technology enhanced teacher education strategies: I investigate the impact of teacher education strategies on pre-service and inservice teachers’ knowledge of effective technology integration.
