Learning is a lifelong process. Humans naturally love to learn. I am exploring ways to use online education to support and encourage that natural process.


One of my research projects is seeking to form generative learning groups in online learning situations.Working with Dr. Wiestke VanOsch.


Also, researching online safety,especially how different age cohorts understand safety. Our project is called Online Safety for the ages.


Also researching how technology can help diverse and marginalized populations.Working on iPad adoption among senior citizens with Dr. Shelia Cotten.
