DOCTORAL RESEARCH SCHOLAR, EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
I am a Ph.D. student in the Inter-Disciplinary Program in Educational Technology at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. My research interests lie in learning science, educational technology, computing education research (specifically programming and data structures education) and development of technology-enhanced learning-teaching environments. Specifically, I am interested in technology enhanced learning environments, thinking skills research, design based research and qualitative research.
I am pursuing my doctoral research under the guidance of Prof. Sridhar Iyer, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Bombay. I am working on promoting students' cognitive processes of knowledge integration which requires skill such as question posing (QP). Better knowledge integration leads to deeper and cohesive understanding of any topic. I have been carrying out this research in the domain of data structures, and the target population is sophomore CS engineering undergraduates. Specifically, I have developed a pedagogy based on question posing to foster students' cognitive skill of Knowledge Integration.and operationalized it using a Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) environment.
