Eduardo Lage-Otero is the Director of the Blume Center for Language and Culture Learning and Hispanic Studies Lecturer in the Language and Culture Studies Program. His academic interests include cognitive science, instructional design of multimedia environments, educational technology, and second language acquisition. His current research focuses on the study of the cognitive processes related to reading and writing in multimedia environments and the mediating effects of individual differences (learning preferences, for example) on learning. By applying an interdisciplinary approach, he aims to add to the existing knowledge-base on language learning with multimedia and to extend it in new directions.
Lage-Otero views language and culture learning as a socially-embedded, knowledge construction process that requires the integration of new, meaningful information with prior knowledge in and out of the classroom. To motivate students and facilitate the learning process he focuses his teaching on building bridges between different subject areas and cultural domains via computer-based environments.
Prior to his arrival at Trinity College, Lage-Otero did his doctoral work in the Program in Educational Communication and Technology at New York University while working with language faculty on technology integration into the language curriculum. Earlier, at Washington University in Saint Louis, he taught conversational Spanish and directed the Language Laboratory at that institution for six years.
