Dr. Li Cheng

Research Scientist

Li Cheng holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with Educational Technology Emphasis and a minor in Research and Evaluation Methodology from the University of Florida. Her research aims to design, develop, evaluate, and integrate advanced learning technologies to facilitate STEM learning and promote equitable education by meeting students’ individual needs.

Dr. Li Cheng has published in top-tier educational technology journals including Computers & Education, Educational Technology Research & Development, British Journal of Educational Technology, and Journal of Educational Computing Research. She has regularly presented at national and international conferences including American Educational Research Association (AERA) and Association for Educational Communications & Technology (AECT).

Dr. Li Cheng currently works with Dr. Neil Heffernan, Cristina Heffernan and the team on E-TRIALS. It is a joint project between the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and The ASSISTments Foundation (TAF) that leverages ASSISTments to support researchers to create randomized controlled trials that strengthen the science of learning.

I believe leveraging the power of artificial intelligence holds the promise to provide all students with timely support and individualized learning opportunities.
