Research Interests

How instructional strategies may be used to extend educational environments to provide quality instruction to small numbers of students. Involves the development of a framework with which macro level instructional planning leads to a series of micro level options to meet the instructional objectives. Run experiments on new instructional techniques which have been proposed for addition to the framework.
