Dr. Suparna Sinha is an Instructional Designer with Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT). She has a MA in Education with a focus on Educational Technology from Michigan State University and PhD. from the Graduate School of Education, Rutgers University. She is interested in understanding how students’ engagement with technologies influences their thinking and learning. Her dissertation reflected this line of research by investigating influences of technological affordances (of simulations, hypermedia and modeling tools) on collaborative engagement and subsequently how student’s collaborative engagements in technology intensive learning environments influences individual transfer of learning. Her interest in blending these two major research areas, i.e. engagement and transfer, stem from her professional focus on educational technology. Prior to working for TLT, Dr. Sinha was the Director of In District Initiatives at the Center for Math, Science and Computer Education where her focus was on K-12 teacher professional development in the areas of Mathematics, Science and Maker Education.
