Gonzalez, Tissenbaum among Inaugural Siebel Center for Design Affiliates

by (Communications Office) / Sep 19, 2023

Congratulations to Gloriana Gonzalez Rivera, professor, Curriculum & Instruction, and Mike Tissenbaum, associate professor, Educational Psychology, on being named to the inaugural Affiliates at the Siebel Center for Design.

Gonzalez Rivera is the Principal Investigator for Engaging teachers in integrating human-centered design for geometry problem-based instruction. In the Shop at SCD, students will use design thinking to solve a problem relevant to their community. Tissenbaum explores how digital games, simulations, and mobile tech can revolutionize learning spaces and promote inclusive computing and engineering curricula for underrepresented youth.

They join Mary Hermann, teaching associate professor, EPOL, in the SCD Affiliate Program.

The program allows affiliates to collaborate with SCD teams and the Director to shape projects and contributions in areas such as teaching HCD, applying it in STEM, Humanities and Social Sciences, K-12 education, communities, and the corporate world.
