My research centers on designing equitable and interactive STEM learning environments for diverse learners and instructors with technology. Within sociocultural and social-cognitive perspectives, I am especially interested in equitably engaging cognitively or culturally different learners in technology-enhanced experiential learning environments. I have collaborated with scholars in interdisciplinary fields including computer science, engineering, medical, special education and sociology.
Within design based research framework, my dissertation research scaffolds college students’ inquiry-based collaborative work in a technology-enhanced large undergraduate biology course.
