Hello, I'm Kei Tomita. I am a Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Interactive Design.
I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University-Bloomington.
My research investigates how the visual design of instructional media can enhance people’s cognitive and affective learning experiences.
I research instructional media because of my belief that media can create personalized learning environments for people with diverse instructional needs.
