I graduated from the department of science education at Dokuz Eylul University in Turkey n 1998. I joined the School of Education as a research assistant in science education Studies in 2000, and completed the MEd in 2003. My PhD, completed in 2006, investigated the effect of computer animation on students’ understanding of electricity concepts.
