Leanna Archambault, Ph.D.
Professor, Learning Design and Technology
Arizona State University
My research interests include K-12 online learning and teacher preparation, the use of emerging technologies in education, and the educational implications of virtual environments. My research centers around three overarching questions:
- What are the challenges that teachers face in online environments, what skills do they need to be successful, and how can institutions of higher education work to better prepare educators for online and blended environments?
- How do we prepare educators to be critical consumers and discerning producers of online instructional resources?
- How can the use of emerging technologies improve the teaching/learning process and outcomes for both teachers and students, to prepare the next generation of literate citizens?
