I am the author of Minds Online: Teaching Effectively with Technology (Harvard University Press, 2014). Currently I work as a professor of psychological sciences at Northern Arizona University, and I also provide consulting, speaking, and professional development services. My background includes research in cognitive psychology, a specialization focusing on thought processes such as memory, language, attention, and decision making, as well as behavioral neuroscience.
