I am a researcher and educator, investigating the way we learn through information problem-solving in a variety of contexts, and impacted by social and technological factors.
I examine the validity and applicability of The Big6 information problem-solving process, developed by Eisenberg & Berkowitz, in understanding learning through information problem solving. I also explore alignment of The Big6 with principles of the Problem-Based Learning Environment developed by Jonassen. I am interested in how these principles promote learning in library programs for children and youth, digital learning environments, and LIS education.
My personal interests include reading, bicycling, pinochle, and travel to sunny destinations.
