Today, I'm starting a new position as the Richard L. Menschel HarvardX Research Fellow. I'm the first person to hold this position (along with Sergiy Nesterko, who will be starting July 1), so the exact scope of my responsibilities is evolving. Broadly speaking, my job is to conduct research on the learning experiences that people have on the HarvardX platform and to consult with HarvardX faculty in creating and facilitating courses, both to make them better for students and better designed to advance our knowledge of online learning.
