Profile

Personal statement

I am working with Primary and Secondary level teachers to teach them about OER and technologies so that they can improve their teaching practices.
This is formalised through an online module delivered within the BSc Educational technologies programme at the University of Mauritius.
I'm currently researching on the extent of teaching transformations and whether this can be sustained in Mauritian Schools through Open Educational practices.
