This is the time of the year where many students start to feel their motivation dwindle, and their exhaustion levels rise. Some may even feel a lack of creativity or inspiration.
I teach Learning, Design, and Technology at the University of Georgia where I focus on technology integration in K12 and higher education. Some of my projects include Robotics Education, and Design Based Research (DBR). DBR focuses on examining how learning theory informs the development of an instructional intervention over time, and on accumulating evidence that the intervention leads to improved learning and/or teaching. Examining the impact of a well-designed instructional intervention over several iterations can lead to the formation of research-based learning principles and practices that also have relevance in an applied context.
Other Projects include the Public Service and Outreach Fellowship, a Design Based Research Conference in 2013, and eSupervision. For more information on my research and personal interests, please visit my professional website.
