The research focus of our group is on technology enhanced learning (TEL) environments to develop disciplinary practices of undergraduate students. We design, implement and evaluate such TEL systems in various science and engineering disciplines. Our research includes pedagogies for effective use of educational technologies, for which we have conducted a number of faculty professional development workshops.
