Instructional Technology Specialist

Dr. Lindsey Chandler is an Instructional Technology Specialist for DPI. Lindsey provides professional development support for residential faculty to integrate digital methods in both teaching and research. She draws upon 10+ years of experience using digital project tools in teaching and research from her time as a PhD student, postdoc, instructor and content supervisor for Spanish courses in the Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese at Penn State.

Prior to joining DPI, Lindsey graduated with a PhD in Spanish and Language Science (2022) from Penn State. Her dissertation research examined the relationship between word structure and reading times in first- and second-language Spanish reading. Lindsey's research more broadly addresses how psycholinguistic research can be applied for practical purposes in the classroom. Lindsey also holds an MA in Foreign Languages (2017) from North Carolina State University, and a BA in Psychology in Spanish (2014) from Appalachian State University. Outside of academia, Lindsey is passionate about community support initiatives across the Appalachian region, spending time outdoors, and the expressive arts, and remains an active board member for the State College Young Professionals.
