Name

Noor Elagha

LTEC Role

Graduate Research Assistant at the UIC Learning Sciences and Research Institute

Professional Background

I am currently a 2nd year graduate student in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Illinois at Chicago with an interest in learning processes.

Why is LTEC my jam?

Most of the reason I am pursuing higher education in this domain is to contribute to equity in education. Being part of the effort to provide equitable access to math + CT knowledge and skills has already taught me so much, and I’m glad I get to be in the thick of it right from the beginning!

My work

I contribute mostly to the CT assessment design and validation process, response scoring, and data analysis.

What I do with my spare time

I really like reading auto/biographies, and recounts of living through war crimes are my favorite (I have no idea why).

Fun facts

I have a soft spot for skylines ;)
