research overview

  • Dr. Quigley's research studies students’ engagement with learning technologies in the classroom. He analyzes students’ use of tools with a mixed-methods approach, using analytics, surveys, observations and interviews to demonstrate the impact of improved tool design and the incorporation of real-time feedback based on novel analytics on the student learning experience. This leads to three questions that drive his research trajectory: 1) How can we use analytics to automatically characterize students’ engagement with science and engineering practices at scale? 2) How can we use digital learning tool design to promote successful use of science and engineering practices? 3) How do students’ use of these practices influence their engagement and learning? This mix of analytics, design, and educational research allows for the exploration of new frontiers in the space of designing adaptive learning technologies.

  • CSCI 3702 - Cognitive Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Introduces cognitive science, drawing from psychology, philosophy, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and linguistics. Studies the linguistic relativity hypothesis, consciousness, categorization, linguistic rules, the mind-body problem, nature versus nurture, conceptual structure and metaphor, logic/problem solving and judgment. Emphasizes the nature, implications and limitations of the computational model of mind. Recommended prerequisites: two of the following CSCI 1300 or CSCI 2275 or LING 2000 or PHIL 2440 or PSYC 2145.
