Dr Mireilla Bikanga Ada

  • Lecturer (LTS) (Computing Science)

Biography

I joined the University of Glasgow as a Lecturer on the Teaching and Scholarship track in September 2018.

I joined the School of Computing Science from the INTO Glasgow Caledonian University (January - August 2018) and Glasgow Clyde College (2014-18), where I worked as a Lecturer in Computing.

My interdisciplinary PhD at the University of the West of Scotland looked at the feedback delivery methods, in particular, the use of mobile technology for assessment feedback.

Research interests

  • Learning analytics and big data in CS education
  • Assessment and feedback in CS
  • Identify students at risk: using students’ affective state as a measure of risk
  • Game-based Learning in CS
  • Active learning in CS education: Flipped classroom, modified Team-Based Learning
  • MSc supervision and marking
  • Information systems
