EPA Spotlight: Curation and Content Learning

Gregg Byrne, Senior with Dr. Althea Bauernschmidt 

What is the title of your presentation?

Effects of Curation on Content Learning 

What is your research about?

Our research is geared towards trying to see if manipulating what specific resources people are told to study from affects their general knowledge of a subject. 

Why is your research interesting/relevant/important?

E-learning is a popular and increasingly validated method of learning. One of the primary features of e-learning is the curation of digital content, however the learning benefits of curated content have not been thoroughly examined. 

What are you looking forward to most about the conference?

I enjoy being able to talk to other students, professors, etc. about our research and try to see where new research could possibly lead us.
