Narrative

My primary research has involved developing and examining online course management systems and other technology to improve post-secondary student learning. In addition, I research the teaching of psychology and how technology can be utilized to improve it. Also, I am interested in the history of psychology and the influence of psychological theory and research on large-scale educational interventions.
