My name is Yooyeun Hwang. I am an educational psychologist and teach Educational Psychology classes at Hope. Encounter with Cultures is one Interdisciplinary class that I teach regularly. In addition, I teach a seminar, “Leaning and Learning Strategies,” in the Psychology department.

Although teaching is my major commitment at Hope, I am also involved in empirical research studies and professional activities in my field. For example, I have been working on research studies concerning students’ learning and their learning strategies. Recently, I also started to work on college students’ development of reflective thinking. I have served as a reviewer for professional research organizations such as Midwestern Education Research Association (MWERA) and American Educational Research Association (AERA).
