Research Interests

Fluency is an indicator of mastery and also a pre-requisite to proceed to a higher level skill training. My PhD focuses on examining the effectiveness of Precision Teaching as a student-led learning measurement tool to enhance fluency in learning at Higher Education level. Additional research areas include progressive peer coaching, Bloom’s Taxonomy and critical thinking.
