Research Agenda:

My research interests include technology integration, instructional design, and online learning. The three topics are interrelated and cannot be examined separately to understand current educational change and promote innovative use of technology. In spite of the fast development of computer applications, internet services and Web 2.0 tools, many educators still feel overwhelmed or doubt potential of technology for teaching and learning. I am interested in helping educators use technology for both classroom instruction and professional works.

The research questions I look at include (1) what approaches can promote technology integration, (2) What instructional strategies can enhance successful teaching and learning with different technology and (3) what issues around technology integration (particularly online learning) need to be addressed and how we can handle the issues.

Research in Progress:

  • Park, Y. J. (in progress). Instructional Design theory for higher order thinking skill development in entirely web-based courses in higher education.
  • Park, Y. J. (in progress). Use of social media for peer support and reflection in online graduate courses.
  • Park, Y. J. (in progress). Student support services in a technology-enhanced university system.
