Experience without theory is blind, but theory without experience is mere intellectual play.
Educational Technology, Learning Analytics, Teacher Reflection, Teacher Professional Development
I am a PhD student in the Interdisciplinary Program in Educational Technology at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay).
My research interests lie in Learning Analytics, Teacher Training, Teacher Reflection, Student feedback, and Rural Education Research. I am pursuing my doctoral research under the guidance of Prof. Ritayan Mitra, Interdisciplinary Program in Educational Technology, IIT Bombay.
My doctoral research involves the design and development of a model to support evidence-based teaching practice through student feedback. The research focuses on the development of a unique student feedback system that enables students to provide feedback on their cognitive-affective states in real-time during the lecture. The detailed feedback is then provided to the teacher, through a Teacher Dashboard, for retrospective reflection to refine and improve pedagogy.
I am also working on some additional projects such as ‘Implementation of Challenge Based Learning (CBL) framework in rural schools’ and ‘Rural Teacher Education’.
