Aditi Kothiyal,

Doctoral Research Scholar, IDP in Educational Technology, IIT Bombay

I am a PhD student in the Inter-Disciplinary Program in Educational Techology at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. My research interests lie in engineering education research (specifically ill-structured problem solving in engineering) and development of technology-enhanced learning environments for developing students' ill-structured problem solving skills.

My PhD guide is Prof. Sahana Murthy, Inter-Disciplinary Program in Educational Techology, IIT Bombay. Collectively our research group works on promoting students' thinking skills for reasoning amid complexity such as design thinking, convergent-divergent thinking and question posing among others. Specifically, for my PhD dissertation, I am working on promoting students engineering estimation skills in the domain of electrical engineering. My goal is to design and evaluate a technology enhanced learning environment for developing undergraduates skill in engineering estimation. A summary of my PhD research can be found here.

Research Interests

Engineering estimation, Engineering problem solving, technology-enhanced learning environments, active learning strategies, cognition.
