My name is Daniela (Ela) Castellanos-Reyes. I'm an incoming Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University as part of the Digital Transformation of Education cluster. I am a 2022 NAEd/Dissertation Fellow and I hold a Ph.D. Curriculum and Instruction focused on Learning Design and Technology from Purdue University. My current research interests include online interactions of adults and non traditional learners and identifying course design features that supports online learners' social presence through social learning analytics. I also have work on networked learning and the role of Latina/o/x's in instructional design.
