Last month I highlighted Arizona State University (ASU) as an institution that has made a large-scale commitment to breaking out of the traditional thinking in educational design – the “New American University”. I am pleased to announce that I have just joined ASU, see:
The Institute for the Science of Teaching and Learning, includes some world-class researchers doing great work in Learning Science and I have a goal to add to this the connecting infrastructure that will better translate such science into practice. ASU has a large and innovative online initiative – EdPlus that aims to greatly increase the access to higher education. I will be very involved in number of research initiatives related to this and will look forward to reporting on this in future Blog entries.
