Jennifer DeBoer is currently a postdoctoral associate for education research at MIT's Teaching and Learning Laboratory. She completed her doctoral work at Vanderbilt University in international education policy studies, focusing on engineering student access, equity, and success, and she completed her bachelor's degrees in mechanical engineering and foreign languages and literatures at MIT. Her research interests include the use of technology in education in low-income contexts and the structure of engineering training for local capacity building, currently focusing on online learning.
Dr. Stump is an Associate Director of Assessment and Evaluation in MIT's Teaching and Learning Laboratory. Her work includes assessment of student outcomes from teaching innovations, evaluation of larger programs within the institute, and educational research. Dr. Stump earned a PhD in Educational Psychology with a concentration in Learning along with a certificate in Educational Technology from Arizona State University. Her research interests encompass both the science of learning and its measurement, including understanding how factors such as students’ attitudes and beliefs relate to their choice and utilization of learning strategies, their metacognitive behaviors, and ultimately their learning outcomes.
Dr. Carter-Johnson is responsible for research and evaluating several undergraduate education initiatives at MIT in her role as a Postdoctoral Associate for Educational Research in the Teaching and Learning Laboratory. She completed her PhD in Public Policy with a concentration in evaluation and analytical methods from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. As a result of years of academic and research support from agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the U.S. Department of Education, she is also repeatedly invited to provide funding, proposal, and application preparation training for undergraduate and graduate students.
Lori Breslow is the founding Director of the Teaching & Learning Laboratory (TLL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. An internationally recognized expert in teaching and learning in higher education, she conducts research on the development, diffusion, and assessment of educational innovation, particularly in science and engineering. She is currently leading a joint MIT-Harvard research project to analyze data from edX’s first MOOC, “Circuits and Electronics.”
