Assistant Professor
School of Teaching and Learning

Rob Moore, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Florida in the School of Teaching and Learning and the director of the IDEATE Lab in the Institute for Advanced Learning Technologies.

How do learners succeed in an increasingly complex and interconnected world? Rob’s research attempts to answer this question through focused research on engagement, digital ecologies, and learning analytics. Studying learner relationships in digital ecologies means examining structure and engagement to inform actionable strategies to improve learning experiences. He explores these relationships through learning analytics to identify patterns in learner behavior that can influence learning design.

Currently, he is a Co-PI for the NSF-funded Learning Analytics in STEM Education Research (LASER) Institute. The LASER Institute is unique in that it supports underrepresented early and mid-career scholars in STEM by fostering their existing research agendas, as well as new lines of inquiry and collaborations. Specifically, the institute aims to give these scholars the resources and skills necessary to leverage new data sources and computational methods in their research.
