Curriculum Design at ASU Online
I work on developing astrobiology curricular materials spanning topics from astronomy to geobiology to sustainability for delivery in an exclusively online format. I’ve developed various simulators that help students visualize complex processes, from star formation to the carbonate-silicate cycle to cellular metabolism.
The online smart course (SES 106: Habitable Worlds) is developed in a unique online platform developed by Smart Sparrow that provides students with adaptive feedback and pathways based on what they do in each exercise. In addition, I analyze the significant amounts of data generated by this platform to investigate the effectiveness of these curricula and its unique format on student learning.
