My primary teaching responsibilities include Program Evaluation and Assessment in School.
My research expertise is in educational evaluation and assessment. My primary research agenda includes understanding and improving the teaching and learning process through the use of technology. This involves evaluating technology integration efforts and studying how to better use technology in educational settings. I am currently working on projects utilizing educational data mining and learning analytics (EDM/LA) techniques to improve instruction in technology enabled learning situations. In addition, I have worked with improving assessment, as its impact on evaluation is so important; I have also published on the topic of teaching evaluation as it relates to my primary teaching responsibilities.
