Hi! I am Kadir Kozan who has a PhD in Learning, Design and Technology from Purdue University. So, let’s say I have a PhID or Ph LDT… 😉 I love to consider myself as someone who has been learning to be a “peTechgogue” who investigates “peTechgogy” :)…I think this is of utmost importance given the, by and large, low effect sizes associated with technology integration (you can see Dr. Hattie’s 2016 list here). In petechgogy, I use technology as a way of solving learning performance problems through technology-enabled learning (including tools) following Stolovitch & Keeps (2011) as well as Ertmer & Ottenbreit-Leftwich (2013). In this respect, petechgogy page above includes various posts on learning and learning-related stuff.
This website purports to provide information about my professional development in my field of study. Speaking of it, my research mainly focuses on improving human learning performance through technology integration. To me, technology goes beyond the machinery or tools that are byproducts of it. Specifically, it means integrating evidence-based scientific and professional knowledge to solve human performance problems as they relate to all human endeavors including education. By “evidence-based”, I mean the same thing as the Royal Society`s motto: “Nvllivs in verba”/”Don’t take anybody’s word for it.”
