Changemaker + Social Entrepreneur
I have this innate desire and motivation to leave this world better than I found it.If you also have this drive, you too may be a Social Entrepreneur.
Professor + Learning Scientist
I consider it a privilege to impart wisdom, develop skills and encourage the ideas of the next generation of change-makers. I firmly believe that to accept the role of a teacher, is to accept the role of mentor, guide, cheerleader, and sometimes even devils-advocate. My teaching philosophy is to develop the individual so that they can go out and BE THE CHANGE they want to see in the world.
Research + Projects
I am fascinated with how we can better use emerging technology to create large-scale improvements to education. My current research is focused specifically on how learning analytics, machine learning, and educational data mining can be used in experiential learning programs designed to develop 21st Century Skills, prepare students for the 4th Industrial Revolution, and most importantly - make a positive impact.
Hi, I'm Nikki.
I love God, people, and the life I have had the good fortune of living to date!
With every fiber of my being, I believe that everyone holds within them the potential to change the world! But, the world has and continues to inequitably distribute opportunities for identifying and developing that potential. It is the inequitable distribution of access to education and learning that is my driving force and gets me out of bed every day.
