PULLMAN, Wash. – Sola Adesope, assistant professor in educational psychology, has been recognized nationally for research success early in his career.

He received the TICL Outstanding Early Career Researcher Award from the 25,000-member American Educational Research Association (AERA). The honor recognizes substantial scholarly contributions to the intersection of the four disciplines of technology, instruction, cognition and learning. He will be honored by AERA in Philadelphia in April.

His research focuses on the cognitive and pedagogical underpinnings of learning with computer-based multimedia.

LPRC director Brian French said everyone in the college benefits from Adesope’s work.

“He brings a level of scholarship to the educational psychology program, the LPRC and beyond that is infectious to all who have the opportunity to work with him,” French said.

Tim Church, the college’s associate dean for research, said Adesope has become deeply immersed in research and grant activities in a relatively short time at WSU.

“He’s a highly productive, highly valued and highly congenial member of our faculty,” he said.
