Research Interests

ETeaching methods for undergraduate students in psychology major
EEvaluation of Note-taking behavior
EBehavioral technology

My research interests concern how teachers' and students' behaviors interact each other in university classes. I am particularly interested in the influence of different lecture modes on students' note-taking behavior and their academic outcome. My current research includes making a behavior observation system for measuring students' note-taking behavior in real-time in university class.
