Research overview

Muhammad Sadi Adamu is a PhD student from the School of Computing and Communications (SCC) at Lancaster University. His PhD research is to explore approaches to the design of technologies to be used in Nigerian Higher Education. He is also interested in investigating the impact of technology re-design to fostering better/meaningful user engagement and interaction in cross-cultural educational settings. He approaches his work by adopting an eclectic methodological approach, where stereotypical and western established approaches and some ‘indigenous sensitives’ are deployed.  Muhammad work also argues for an African Standpoint regarding the notion of ‘post-colonial computing’ and ‘technology design’, and thus attempt to open a new line of inquiry and form a particular mode of investigation grounded in the descriptive narrative of the social and cultural world of an African person.

Before joining SCC, Adamu was an Assistant Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, Federal University Gashua, Nigeria. His background is in Computer Science with interest in Human-Computer Interaction and Technology Enhanced Learning.
