About Dr. Hsueh

I have been teaching courses on child development and education at the University of Memphis since 2000. As a developmental researcher, I have conducted research in areas of education and development such as comparative early childhood education, the professional development of preschool teachers, the learning and development of young children, the history of developmental psychology, young children and media. All my research projects shared a focus, that is, examining education, socialization, development, acculturation, in the context of the changing society. For over a decade before 2012, I had worked as a consultant for Sesame Workshop, the producer of Sesame Street. Then, I have since served as its China Director of Education, Research and Outreach. This international engagement in research and education greatly facilitates my understanding of cultural and cross-cultural research in China, bringing a new focus on cultural change in globalization.
