Dr. Megan Humburg
Learning Scientist, Indiana University
My research centers on designing learning activities, technologies, and environments that engage learners' emotions and build social connections as a foundation for powerful collaboration and learning. I leverage educational technologies, embodied learning, and sociocultural theories of learning to thoughtfully design for learner engagement across emotional, social, cognitive, and behavioral dimensions.
I currently work as a PostDoctoral Fellow at Indiana University as a part of the EngageAI Institute. Our work involves designing narrative-centered learning environments that interface with artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to adaptively support student engagement and learning.
Posts for Educators
In addition to academic publications, I also write short articles for general educator audiences to share my own research as well as to help communicate ideas from the learning sciences to everyday educators.
