Personal profile

Dr. Huang’s research is focused on implementation of interventions, which looks at how to optimize individuals’, organizations’ and communities’ motivation and capabilities to engage with intended interventions for the purpose of change. His work delineates decision-making scaffolds and barriers in broadly defined learning and performance contexts, in order to optimize decision-making conditions for individuals, organizations, and communities. Specifically, his research aims at exploring and validating empirical relationships among factors that could influence individuals’ and organizations’ willingness and capabilities in adopting changes across various interventions. His ongoing research includes (1) organizational decision-making attributes on technology innovations, (2) game-based learning environments for effective learning engagement, (3) theory-oriented instructional system design competencies, (4) career decision scaffolds, and (5) digital divides in various contexts.

Research Interests

My current research is focused on delineating the process and value of design, development, and evaluation for learning engagement systems augmented by technologies. I also investigate design efficacies for affective learning outcomes that contribute to sustainable cognitive learning and behavioral modification. Topics have covered:
+ The design and evaluation of informal learning interventions for career development purposes
+ Career decision-making process effectiveness
+ Technological affordance that supports learning in higher education
+ mHealth design and implementation for underrepresented groups
+ Design attributes and learning support of digital game-based learning systems
+ Technologies' emotional, motivational, and cognitive impacts on learning
+ Measurement and manipulation of motivational support and cognitive load in technology-enabled multimedia learning environments
+ Development of ethical thinking and decision-making capacities in online learning settings
+ Decision-making under irrational influences in various learning environments


I teach courses on:
- Instructional system design
- Business principles for Human Resource Development
- Project management
- Training in business/industry
- Facilitation skills
- Design of learning systems
- Program evaluation
- Learning technologies
- Innovation in E-Learning
