View all persons
Dr. Omid Noroozi is an Associate Professor of educational technology at Wageningen University and Research, the Netherlands. He has fostered an interest in understanding the relations among technology, pedagogy, and learning higher-order skills (e.g. critical thinking, reasoning, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, self-regulation, entrepreneurial thinking) with a specific focus on students’ argumentation competence development in higher education. He has been fortunate enough to receive research/education innovation grants to design, implement, and improve various technology-enhanced learning environments for facilitating students’ higher-order skills in higher education.
His research has been the subject of top scientific publications and research awards. He has served as an editorial board member of various international peer-reviewed journals and also edited several special issues as guest editor. Next to organizing various educational research workshops, he has been a scientific member of various conferences and presented many papers both as presenter of articles and/or as invited keynote speaker. He is a member of scientific associations e.g. AERA, ISLS, ICO, EARLI and serve as an active reviewer for more than 40 international peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
He has been a visiting scholar at University of Michigan, USA, University of Oulu, Finland, and Tarbiat Modares University, Iran.
