We are very happy to welcome postdoctoral researcher Muhterem Dindar to the SLAM team! Below you can read his introduction:
I have a Ph.D. degree in Computer Education and Instructional Technology, which I obtained from Anadolu University, Turkey, in 2015. My thesis focused on the effects of multitasking on learning of so-called digital natives in technology enhanced learning environments. Previously, I have conducted research on various topics such as cognitive load measurement, online gaming motivations, game transfer phenomena, social media and youngsters, and complex problem solving.
I am excited to be part of the SLAM team which allows me to apply my previous experience on a novel field of study in learning sciences. For me the most inspiring part of the SLAM project is the utilization of multimodal data in temporal tracing of cognitive, emotional and social dimensions of collaborative learning processes. I believe that our findings will provide valuable insights to develop innovative methods for visualizing covert mental processes during self-regulated learning.
