Academic Profile and Expertise


My Brief Education Route


After acquiring an honours degree in educational pedagogy and psychology, I completed my master’s degree (MEd) thesis at the Univ. of Pretoria ‘Development of Computer-Supported Programme for Teaching Mathematics on Secondary School Level’. I acquired my DEd in technology education in 2002 from the Rand Afrikaans University (now University of Johannesburg or UJ). From 2002 to 2003 I completed the Qualitative Research Programme at University of Johannesburg. In 2012 I was promoted to Scientific Advisor at the Univ. of Zagreb, Faculty of Organization and Informatics.

As a lifelong learner and an academic my passion for research has been reflected in a message from my supervisors ‘…we sincerely appreciate your committed efforts and are very proud of the thesis of exceptionally high quality…’
