Editor/Author Biographies
Rod Roscoe is an Assistant Professor of Human Systems Engineering in the Polytechnic School of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. His research investigates how educational technology can promote cognitive, metacognitive, and motivational processes of learning. Recent work has studied the design of formative feedback in automated writing evaluation, effects of end-user perceptions on technology effectiveness, and self-directed learning and decision making in online settings.
Scotty D. Craig is an Assistant Professor in the Human Systems Engineering Program within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). He is the supervising faculty member for the Cognitive-Based Applied Learning Technology Laboratory (www.cobaltlab.org) at ASU and the Co-Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning Partnership Lab at Arizona State University (adl.asu.edu). He received his PhD in experimental psychology with a specialization in cognitive psychology from the University of Memphis and served as a postdoctoral fellow with the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center at the University of Pittsburgh/ Carnegie Melon University. His goal is to provide cutting-edge research at the intersection of human cognition, technology, and the learning sciences that provides solutions to real-world problems within education and training. His research interests encompass understanding the implementation of multimedia educational environments, including such features as emotions, dialog, interaction, and cognition.
Ian Douglas is Executive Director of the Institute for the Science of Teaching and Learning, Arizona State University and Research Professor in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. His primary interest is in system design – how we integrate people, processes, methods, and technology to optimize desirable outcomes. Prior to his current position, he has worked on research and development of systems as diverse as online degree programs at Florida State University, technology supported school field trips to museums and knowledge management of human performance analysis in the US military.
