Constance Steinkuehler is an assistant professor in the Educational Communication and Technology program in the Curriculum and Instruction department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Her research is on cognition, learning, and literacy in MMO games. Current interests include “pop cosmopolitanism” in online worlds and the intellectual practices that underwrite such a disposition, including informal scientific reasoning, collaborative problem solving, media literacy (as production, not just consumption), computational literacy, and the social learning mechanisms that support the development of such expertise (e.g., reciprocal apprenticeship, collective intelligence).
