research overview

  • Dr. Sieber's research areas have to do with two eras of technology-driven communication revolution: Renaissance Europe immediately post printing press, and the current networked digital age. She has published on Don Quixote, Spanish Golden Age drama, poetry and historiography, and cartographic works on Spanish Colonial New Mexico. She has also presented papers and published on teaching and learning with emerging technologies in higher education. Recent work includes studies of learning through online social networks, the gamification of educational experience, and addressing digital distraction of students (by laptops, tablets and mobile phones) in classroom settings.
