I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University in Idaho, USA. I have expertise in instructional design, assessment, learning and educational technology theory, and technology integration for teaching and learning (especially Web 2.0 technologies). I have taught Online Teaching for Adult Learners, Designed-Based Research, Instructional Design, 
Theoretical Foundations of Educational Technology and Portfolio at BSU.These are online courses for students in our master's programs. I received my PhD from Instructional Systems Program at Penn State University in 2009. Before I came to BSU, I worked at Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence at Penn State as a graduate instructional consultant. I also co-taught a master's level online class "Internet in the Classroom" with my advisor for 5 semesters and really enjoyed working with k-12 educators on technology integration. My research interests are 

  1. Online learning and teaching
  2. Computer-supported collaborative learning
  3. Scaffolding cognitive and metacognitive processes of problem solving
