As Principal Investigator for multiple projects awarded to her through the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning, Dr. Ault has been involved in research and development addressing the design and instructional integration of technology since 1995, with an emphasis on the design and delivery of online instructional resources and multiplayer online games. Her role on both research and development projects is to oversee the day-to-day operations of the project, manage the budget, and coordinate all research, development, and reporting. She takes a lead on coordinating activities with the school leadership and teachers, and oversees the integration of content into online resources. She manages the interactions with collaborators, particularly the user-testing in implementation sites. She also takes the lead on coordinating interactions with the consultants and advisors that provide both formative and summative input on project activities.
