Dr. Huber was funded by the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education to develop a model to incorporate service-learning into her web-based class on aging and by the Office of the Vice President for Instructional Technologies to evaluate the effectiveness of online pedagogies. She was a co-PI on a US Dept. of Education three year grant to develop and implement a full gerontology curriculum online. She is a co-PI on an NSF grant investigating privacy in home-based ubiquitous computing for older adults and on another NSF grant investigating how to keep seniors safe online. Her research interests include gerontology and geriatric education for health care professionals, physical activity and aging, creativity and aging, gerotechnology, and pedagogical strategies in distributed education.
