Research Area

 

I am a Ph.D. student. The area of my research work falls into Knowledge Representation particularly focusing in Science Education.

Our approach investigates the representation of scientific knowledge by focusing on the predicates rather than on the concepts. 

Thesis Topic

 

Developing and Studying the Effectiveness of Refined Concept Mapping in Science Education.

Objectives

  • To represent the domain of Cell Biology at the school, college and undergraduate level
  • To develop a minimal set of relation names
  • To develop a set of process names
  • To apply the RCM & Process Modelling in school, college, university student
  • To compare the representation of novice and expert
  • To trace the conceptual change in learning by applying the KR model

Areas of Interest

Knowledge Representation, Cognitive Science, Educational Psychology, Science Education,

Refined Concept Maps, Conceptual Change, Novice-Expert, Structure and Dynamics of Knowledge,

History and Philosophy of Science, Bio-ontology, Cell biology, Biology education, Conceptual structures
