As Learning Scientist and Lecturer at UT Austin's Jackson School of Geosciences, Adam teaches and studies learning, communication and the social impact of science and technology. He has over 15 years of design, research and evaluation experience in education, capacity-building and collective action. His current research is focused on connected learning and innovation in contemporary open and participatory networks, and he is particularly interested in how connected individuals craft narratives of interests, values and identity to position themselves in value-laden research and innovation networks that may not be clearly organized by disciplinary norms and goals. Adam has a PhD in Learning Technologies from the University of Texas at Austin, an MPH in International Health from Tulane University and a BA in Philosophy and Biology from Macalester College. A recent editor of the Texas Education Review, he has reviewed for and published in a variety of scholarly education research journals, and is an active member of the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS) and the American Education Research Association (AERA).
