Brief Bio

H. Chad Lane is an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology and Informatics at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA. Prof. Lane's research focuses on the design, use, and impacts of intelligent technologies for learning and behavior change. This work involves blending techniques from the entertainment industry (that foster engagement) with those from artificial intelligence and intelligent tutoring systems (that promote learning), as well as running studies to better understand whether and how the resulting learning experiences impact learners. He has led design-based research projects involving educational games, intelligent tutoring systems, and immersive technologies. His current work focuses on the uses of game and sensing technologies for science learning in informal learning contexts. Prior to joining UIUC in early 2015, he was Director of Learning Sciences Research at the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies where he led highly interdisciplinary efforts to build and evaluate a variety of educational technologies covering wide-ranging topics such as science learning, intercultural competence, gardening/cooking, computer programming, and motivational interviewing. He has over 60 publications, delivered invited talks around the U.S and Europe, and has hands-on experiences in informal and formal learning contexts. He was director of the Joseph Baldwin Academy from 1996-1998, an academic summer camp for kids in Missouri, and earned his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2004. There, he conducted his doctoral research on intelligent learning technologies for problem understanding and solving skills in the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC).
