Research Interests

My research focus is in the area of Instructional design in Educational Technology. The focus is on the application of design principles for enhancing effective teaching in the classroom. It also examined how modern technology can be used to reconceptualise Fine-Arts curriculum. All of the above are with the view to improve the performance and students interest in Fine Arts in the secondary schools.
