- Pan-Domain Cognitive Abilities
An important goal of education is that in addition to content, students
develop cognitive process abilities. Learners are expected to use these
abilities for sense-making and problem-solving across domains in
educational settings and in the workplace. Our research group focuses on
the following aspects:
- Cognitive abilities used in engineering and science such as, design,
problem-posing, estimation, algorithmic thinking, creation & revision of
scientific models, data representation & analysis, decision making.
Technology enhanced learning environments for development of such abilities.
Transfer of cognitive abilities across domains.
Assessment of such abilities.
- Teacher Use of Educational Technology Tools and Strategies
The potential of educational technology tools is lost without appropriate
pedagogical strategies. Instructors not only need to have a knowledge of
which tools are relevant, but more importantly how to integrate them
effectively in the teaching-learning process. Our research in this area
Creation of frameworks and models for effective integration of ET tools and strategies by instructors.
Designs for faculty professional development programs for effective integration of ET tools and strategies.
- Educational Technology Tools
Our group works in the design and development of AI and ICT based tools for achieving specific teaching-learning goals such as:
- Automated assessment
- Automated content generation
