    Towson University

    Suzhen Duan is an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Technology and Literacy at Towson University. Dr. Duan received her Ph.D. degree from the Learning Design and Technology program at Purdue University. Dr. Duan’s research interests focus on motivation, specifically applying one of the most widely used positive psychology interventions—Best Possible Self (BPS)—in real-world educational contexts to improve learners’ overall well-being, attitudes, academic commitment, and professional identity. She has published four first-author papers in this area. In teaching, she hopes to identify each learner’s uniqueness and facilitate them to be their best possible selves, which her students echoed: It was so nice to meet you and to have someone that wanted the best for everyone.
