I am an Assistant Professor of Instructional Design and Technology at West Virginia University, Learning Sciences and Human Development Department.
My research focuses on designing innovative and technology-rich learning environments to teach young children important higher-order thinking skills. A recent example of this work is Game Design and Learning (GDL) courses that I initiated and ran in both the US and Istanbul, Turkey. The results of this work can be found in my dissertation titled: "Cognitive and Motivational Outcomes of Learning Game Design on Middle School Children."
Currently, I am teaching Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology courses at the online Instructional Design and Technology program at WVU.
