I am currently a tenured Professor in the Instructional Design and Technology Program at the University of Arizona’s College of Applied Science and Technology. I am also affiliated with the interdisciplinary Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT) program. My main research goal is to develop an understanding of educational computing processes in the learning environments. More specifically, my work focuses on the design and development of learning experiences with the use of emerging technologies and computational thinking practices. Most currently, I am researching augmented and virtual reality technologies and their incorporation in learning and teaching. My background is in foreign languages, so I apply learning design concepts in foreign language instruction. In addition, I am interested in global education and new possibilities brought to global education via online collaborative technologies.
