Associate Professor of Physics
Director, LON-CAPA Project
Dr. Kortemeyer's research focuses on postsecondary STEM education in general, and physics education research in particular.
He has been leading the development of tools for online learning, content management, assessment, learning analytics, and educational data mining.
Of particular interest is the data generated from online learning venues - not only in virtual university courses or MOOCs, but also in flipped, blended, or hybrid learning environments.
He has also been developing informal STEM education technologies, such as visualizations, games, and most recently planetarium shows.
He is interested in the transferability of results from physics education research conducted at US-American universities to education systems in other countries, and has been working on studies with colleagues in Brazil and Germany.
