Personal profile

Alison Anderson Holland, EdD, is a digital learning designer and researcher. She works in the University of Minnesota’s college of Extension, helping scientists and science communicators expand or deepen their reach. But there's a lot unknown about how people learn from the content they consume online. So Alison does empirical research to add to our collective understanding in this field, and uses that knowledge to serve as a change agent, collaboratively creating educational content to engage the curious public online.
