Shiyan Jiang

Assistant Professor, Learning Design and Technology

Poe Hall 310-G


Dr. Jiang joined the program of Learning Design and Technology in 2019. She teaches graduate courses for the program, such as Data Visualization in Education. Prior to arriving at NC State, Dr. Jiang worked as a postdoctoral associate at Carnegie Mellon University.

Research Description

Dr. Jiang’s research focuses on integrating digital literacy in STEM learning, such as empowering K-12 AI (Artificial Intelligence) education with narrative modeling (NSF Award # 1949110). In addition, she designs and studies technology-enhanced learning environments to facilitate the development of disciplinary identities and engage early adolescents in career exploration.


Ph.D. in Teaching and Learning (Specialization in Technology-enhanced STEM Education) from the University of Miami in 2018
