Bio (296 words)  

Carl C. Haynes-Magyar is a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute. Carl's master's work included (1) evaluating curriculums based on their ability to develop a learner's proficiency in assessment and (2) assessing the relationship between a learner's perceived and actual learning outcomes during web search interaction. His doctoral work involved studying the design of learning analytics dashboards (LADs) to support learners' development of self-regulated learning (SRL) skills and investigating how people learn to program using interactive eBooks with adaptive mixed-up code (Parsons) problems. Carl's postdoctoral work is a continued investigation into computing education. It involves creating an online programming practice environment called Codespec. The goal is to scaffold the development of programming skills such as code reading and tracing, code writing, pattern comprehension, and pattern application across a gentle slope of different problem types. These types range from drag-and-drop programming problems to writing code from scratch. Codespec will support learners, instructors, and researchers by providing help-seeking features, generating multimodal learning analytics, and cultivating IDEAS: inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, sexual orientation and gender awareness. Carl has published several peer-reviewed articles at top venues such as the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI). He has taught as an instructor for courses on organizational behavior, cognitive and social psychology for design, human-computer interaction, learning analytics, educational data science, and data science ethics. In the past, his students and colleagues have nominated him for instruction and diversity, equity, and inclusion awards. He is a member of AAAI, ACM SIGCHI, SIGCSE, ALISE, and ISLS. Carl received his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan School of information in 2022, and a master's degree in Library and Information Science with honors from Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (iSchool) in 2016.
