A major part of my work is to assist faculty in course design and technology integration. I enjoy working with faculty from different disciplines across the campus and exploring a variety of course design contexts. I gained my Ph.D. from the Educational Psychology and Educational Technology program in the College of Education at MSU in 2020. During my doctoral studies, I had the opportunities to teach, design, and research courses of different modalities. Before coming to MSU, I worked in Beijing for several years in a technology company, focusing on user demand analysis and user experience design.
Broadly, I am interested in how technologies can facilitate, enhance, and even transform teaching and learning in higher education. Under this broad umbrella, I am specifically interested in user experience design and research, new literacies of reading and learning on the open Web for complex problem solving, and teaching and learning in online, hybrid, and synchronous hybrid courses, where face-to-face and online participants interact in real time through technologies.
