EDCI 6300 Introduction to Research Fall 2010 participants  

Hello Class, I am Yan Yang, the instructor of this class. I was born and raised in China before I came to the States for an international experience and advancement of my career. I have been fascinated with the role psychology plays in teaching and learning during my six years of undergrad and graduate teaching in a Chinese university. With that curiosity I got my Ph.D in Educational Psychology and became an educational psychologist. I absolutely love teaching and research! I am thankful that I get to do what I enjoy!
