Early Stage Researcher
As a member of the EdTech research group at the School of Computing, my PhD research focus is on developing a Technology Enhanced Knowledge Management Platform for Research in Higher Education and a technology Prototype simulating the model.
My research interest is in designing and developing technology enhanced Collaboration platform for research and teaching-learning in developing countries' higher education, which also addresses prevailing challenges in the local contexts beyond the technology tools and capabilities. Besides, I am also interested in research related to ICT engagement in teaching-learning in general and mainly in technology integration in higher education pedagogy as well.
Currently, I am working for the school of computing on a research project called ‘Vauhtia Uralle’ that aims to provide flexible paths to the skills needs of a working life, mainly for young graduates. I am also representing UEF in the new Erasmus + project called 'TRUE - Transparency of Learning Outcomes through Blockchain Technology' and a Consortium project of 8 European Institutions from academia and technology ind..
