Executive Director of SNHU Labs
Manchester, NH, United States
I oversee SNHU Labs, the R&D unit of the Innovation Center at Southern New Hampshire University, a private, nonprofit, accredited institution with more than 3,000 on campus students, over 135,000 online students. My team conducts theoretical and empirical research grounded in learning science, stays abreast of emerging technologies and signals of the future, and oversees the design, development, and testing of prototypes in order to help set the North Star – the vision - for the class of 2030. We recently designed and developed 3 VR experiences aligned to the learning outcomes of a biopsychology course. We are currently conducting learning efficacy and feasibility testing - preliminary results suggest high engagement levels with increased learning.
