Hi, I am Deepti Reddy, pursuing PhD. in Inter-Disciplinary Program Educational Techology
at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay,
under the guidance of Prof. Sridhar Iyer, CSE Department, IIT Bombay and Dr. Sasikumar M., CDAC, Kharghar, Navi Mumbai.
I am also working as Associate Professor in Department of Computer Engineering, SIES Graduate School of Technology, Mumbai University.
My research topic is " TEL environment for Teaching and Learning of Divergent and Convergent Thinking through open problem solving". The research is focused on education of engineering undergraduate students. The current engineering education is more focused on teaching content and is assumed that the thinking skills needed for engineering competencies like complex problem solving is developed implicitly. Research implies that the thinking skills are difficult to acquire without teaching explicitly. My research is aimed at devloping divergent and convergent thinking skill in the context of open problem solving in early years of engineering.
