My degree is currently in progess. I have so far focused on curriculum design, learning theory, cognitive ergonomics, and game design.
My research years will be spent examining game design principles and how they can be used in educational experiences. This field of work has been called gamification.
The bulk of my degree was spent in human cognition, psychological development, and statistics & psyhcometrics. A small sliver of my time was also given to art, broadly speaking, with classes on ceramics, drawing, and literature (e.g., Shakespeare).
