Dr. Chrystalla Mouza is Dean of the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. She earned Ed.D., M.Ed, and M.A. degrees in instructional technology and media from Teachers College, Columbia University and completed postdoctoral work at the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Dr. Mouza’s work focuses on the design and empirical study of preservice and in-service experiences that help teachers integrate technology, content, and pedagogy in ways that improve the learning opportunities available to students. Much of her work focuses on urban teachers and the ways in which they can use technology with disadvantaged students as a means to improve access to digital resources and create enriched learning environments. Recently, she has been examining pedagogical strategies that help advance teacher knowledge in relation to novel technologies such as programming tools that support students as creators of computing. Dr. Mouza’s work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Delaware Economic Development Office and the Delaware Department of Education. She has published widely in peer-reviewed research journals, books, and conference proceedings.
