Bio sketch

(from http://www.tophe.net/tophebio.html )

Dr. Chris Hoadley is an associate professor of Education and of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University. He designs, builds, and studies ways for computers to enhance collaboration and learning. Hoadley has degrees in cognitive science, computer science, and education from MIT and the University of California at Berkeley, and currently his research focuses on collaborative technologies and computer support for cooperative learning (CSCL). Other interests include research on and through design, systems for supporting social capital and distributed intelligence (especially for educational reform), the role of informatics and digital libraries in education, the psychology of computer programming, and science and engineering education. Hoadley is the Director of dolcelab, the Laboratory for Design Of Learning, Collaboration & Experience. He is affiliated with the Penn State Center for Human-Computer Interaction and the American Center for the Study of Distance Education. Hoadley previously chaired the American Educational Research Association's Special Interest Group for Education in Science and Technology, and served as the first President of the International Society for the Learning Sciences.

Previously, Dr. Hoadley was a research scientist at the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International and a consulting assistant professor in the Learning, Design, and Technology program at Stanford University. Hoadley was the Director of the Center for Innovative Learning Technologies Knowledge Network for four years. He founded and leads the Design-Based Research Collective, funded by the Spencer Foundation.

Field of interest

Sociotechnical designs for learning, collaboration, and empowerment. CSCL. Research on the cognition of design and collaboration. Environmental, science, and engineering education.

Chosen topic group (but also interested in)

Chosen topic group: Software

Also interested in: Curriculum

Planned contribution to ISDDE 2008

I'd primarily want to talk about design-based research methods, but also about the role of design partnerships in developing technologies for learning. I have two interesting areas to talk about: one is a study we conducted on teacher-learning scientist-technologist partnerships in secondary science education in the US, and the other is design partnerships for technology design in the developing world with South Asian teachers, technologists, and activists in the nonprofit sector.
