About

Rob Moore, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Florida in the School of Teaching and Learning and the director of the IDEATE Lab in the Institute for Advanced Learning Technologies. His scholarship analyzes digital learning ecologies, focusing on massive open online courses (MOOCs), to identify innovative ways to improve student outcomes. He is particularly interested in leveraging learning analytics to identify patterns in student behavior that can inform learning design.
Currently, he is a Co-PI for the NSF-funded Learning Analytics in STEM Education Research (LASER) Institute. The LASER Institute is unique in that it supports underrepresented early and mid-career scholars in STEM by fostering their existing research agendas, as well as new lines of inquiry and collaborations. Specifically, the institute aims to give these scholars the resources and skills necessary to leverage new data sources and computational methods in their research.
