Learning Community Unit (Knowledge Creation Cluster), Professor
I am an educational psychologist, studying learners’ cognition with reading comprehension in the learning activity. Educational Psychology holds a variety of knowledge, information and theories, but they often do not link with the implementation in the classroom directly. One of the reasons is that we educational psychologists are not necessarily specializing pedagogy or subject education. I believe that collaboration beyond boundaries of specialization can create new knowledge that serves us most effectively. EVRI provides such opportunities for cooperation that I am truly looking forward to being part of.
