Chris Hoadley is new NSF STEM-C program officer

STEM-C is the new NSF program that supersedes the old CE21 and BPC programs.  Chris Hoadley is a learning scientist whom I first met when he was a graduate student at Berkeley working with Marcia Linn.  He’s done great work in computer-supported collaborative learning and in design-based research methodology in the learning sciences.

He has CS Ed roots.  Years and years ago, he did his Masters project asking the question, “What’s the right amount of documentation for a library utility function to get a student to use it, rather than build their own from scratch?”  He published that result at the wonderful Empirical Studies of Programmer’s Workshop, whose proceedings (never digitized, I think) are carefully guarded in my lab.

Christopher Hoadley  joins the US National Science Foundation as a program director in the Education and Human Resources Directorate, Division of Research and Learning in Formal and Informal Settings, and in the Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering Directorate, Division of Information and Intelligent Systems on December 2, 2013. Hoadley retains his faculty position at NYU and will be “on loan” to NSF, appointed under the intergovernmental personnel act (IPA) and will help implement the gold standard merit review process and influence new directions for NSF in cyberlearning and informal STEM learning in funding programs such as Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies, STEM-C, and Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST). Hoadley has designed and built educational technology programs and researched the connections between technology and learning and learning for more than three decades. He has published extensively and made presentations around the world on rethinking learning, evidence-based learning solutions, and digital education.
