Before COVID-19 forced emergency moves to remote teaching across the world, I had been specializing in research on online education. Now more than ever, it is essential that instructors are empowered with empirically-based pedagogy to teach in online environments. My research has focused on developing an ecology of feedback in an online STEM course which accounts for student and instructor perceptions of feedback as well as the technologies which mediate feedback. The ecology of feedback model can be applied to any course to holistically understand feedback.
I am currently in the process of publishing from my study on the ecology of feedback and will add publications here as they are finalized.
