About Dr. Roxanne Bailey
As a Y2-Rated researcher Dr. Bailey’s main research focus is the promotion of self-directed learning through the implementation of cooperative learning and blended learning especially in the fields of computer science education. In her chapter “A systematic review of research on the use of technology-supported cooperative learning to enhance self-directed learning” she, along with her colleague Prof Elsa Mentz, explored the incorporation of technology when implementing cooperative learning. Roxanne has received several research grants for her research and is currently involved in three research projects aimed at investigating technology-supported cooperative learning in computer science education modules. Apart from her research focus being implemented mostly in computer science education modules, Roxanne has investigated strategies for supporting novice programmers at High School level – Grade 10, as well as Tertiary level – BEd students “Introduction to programming module”.
