Mark Urban-Lurain
Associate Director, Center for Engineering Education Research



I am responsible for teaching, research and curriculum development, with emphasis on engineering education and, more broadly, STEM education.

My research interests are in theories of cognition, how these theories inform the design of instruction, how we might best design instructional technology within those frameworks, and how the research and development of instructional technologies can inform our theories of cognition. I am also interested in preparing future STEM faculty for teaching, incorporating instructional technology as part of instructional design, and STEM education improvement and reform.
