I am an associate professor at Arizona State University. My research interests include K-12 online learning and teacher preparation, the use of emerging technologies in education, and the educational implications of virtual environments. My research centers around three overarching questions:
1) What are the challenges that teachers face in online environments, what skills do they need to be successful, and how can institutions of higher education work to better prepare educators for online and blended environments?
2) What is the nature of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) and how does this inform preparing teachers for 21st century classrooms, a growing number of which will not have walls?
3) How can the use of emerging technologies improve the teaching/learning process and outcomes for both teachers and students, to prepare the next generation of literate citizens?
