Full Description of the Session

Learning science research is clear about the Doer Effect: students learn best by doing interacting with content through questions, activities, and simulations. Learn about various options for applying the Doer Effect to OER content, and collaborate with others to create learning activities that put these methods into practice.

Ross Strader is the Director of Learning Engineering at Lumen Learning. His focus is on the intersection of technology and the learning sciences – specifically, looking at new ways to bring learning science research to bear on technology-based, student-centered learning environments. Prior to joining Lumen, Ross was one of the founding members of the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University in 2001 and then at Stanford University in 2013, where he led teams in developing data-driven, interactive online courseware. Ross holds Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon and UT Austin, respectively.

Norman Bier is Director of the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) and Core Collaborations at Carnegie Mellon University. His work at OLI sits at the intersection of CMU’s internal educational practice, ongoing learning science research and external collaboration. Norman has spent his career working to expand access to and improve the quality of education. His experience spans the higher educational sector, including 2-year and 4-year; public and private; domestic and international; and commercial institutions. Prior to joining OLI, he was Director of Training and Development at iCarnegie Inc., a CMU subsidiary chartered to deliver software development education through international partner institutions.
