As a doctoral research assistant, I collaborated in the design and development process of transforming a face-to-face genomics ethics course for distribution as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This instructional design project served as a catalyst for my dissertation research investigating the comparative effects of physical and virtual biology laboratories, and the affordances of instructor presence and learner control. The quantitative results of my dissertation demonstrated equivalence between physical and virtual based science instruction. Further, the qualitative focus group data collected revealed that learners are often positive and welcome learning through technology.

I intend to investigate the use of virtual laboratories and simulations in majors' courses and in college science courses outside the subject of biology. Additionally, I want to qualitatively investigate students' experiences of physically based laboratory learning. More research is needed to investigate how instructors can encourage students to take advantage of the unique affordances provided in physical and and virtual science courses. I intend to investigate this question a research study where students' use of physical and virtual technological affordances is integrated into their course grade; this will provide the fields of science education and instructional design with a more concrete picture of how affordances impact student learning and achievement in science subjects. I am experienced in working with curriculum publishing companies and agencies such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) to obtain the necessary software programs and funding needed for these future studies.
