Education is changing

New technologies and better understanding of the processes by which people learn are making it increasingly feasible to measure and assess a much wider range of learning outcomes, including higher order learning, critical thinking development, and so forth.  This in turn will enable much more effective evaluation of the quality of education, and will enable increasingly transparent communication of learning objectives and outcomes to educational stakeholders.

These trends will have a transformational effect on education over the next decade, necessitating responsive change at all levels, from national policy to institutional organization to individual teaching and learning interactions.

My goal is to positively influence these change processes through research and evaluation that focuses on improvement of student and organizational learning.
