PhD, computer-supported collaborative learning, Wageningen University & Research Center

Vitaliy Popov is an Assistant Professor of Learning Health Sciences. He is currently serving as a co-principal investigator on three projects funded by the National Science Foundation, ranging from studying visuospatial skills development through origami to applying multimodal learning analytics in teamwork and understanding the mechanisms of an A-ha! moment. Dr. Popov completed his PhD in computer-supported collaborative learning at Wageningen University & Research Center, in the Netherlands. His background allows him to utilize evidence in education science, simulation-based training, and learning analytics to understand how people become expert health professionals, how they can better work in teams, and how we can support these processes to foster health care delivery and health outcomes.
