Dr. Rohit Kandakatla - Educational Technology Tools Integration through the Technology, Content, Assessment, and Pedagogy (TCAP) Framework
Whether we have experienced teaching face-to-face, blended, or online classes, educational technology tools for learning have been part of the teaching resources repertoire for quite some time now. Integration of simulations, virtual labs, collaborative platforms, and assessment tools as part of the teaching process is familiar to many, yet a more deliberate approach to thinking of how a particular educational tool will help to achieve learning outcomes is frequently not part of the decision-making process. Dr. Kandakatla talks to us about a thoughtful and holistic approach to thinking about educational technology tools integration in STEM classes using a variation of the Content, Assessment, and Pedagogy (CAP) framework he calls TCAP (Technology, Content, Assessment, and Pedagogy).
Dr. Rohit Kandakatla has completed his Ph.D. in Engineering Education from Purdue University and is currently serving as the Director for Strategy, Operations, and Human Resource Development at KG Reddy College of Engineering and Technology. He also has an adjunct faculty appointment with the Center for Engineering Education Research at KLE Technological University. Prior to his PhD in Purdue, Rohit completed his bachelor’s and master’s in electrical engineering from India. His research interests include faculty use of educational technology, service learning, understanding organizational development in higher education and education policy.
