Dr. Blair's research focuses on examining how learning happens in informal, out-of-classroom settings like museums and historic sites, to better understand impacts and improve methods. She develops educational programs for the museum's pre-K-12, university, and lifelong learning audiences. Her work includes emphases on digital and online learning. In her teaching, she strives to blend content, pedagogical approaches, and learning tools to create a classroom atmosphere in which students are actively engaged, not only in constructing knowledge, but also in developing themselves as learners who think creatively and critically.
