Biography

Dr Mamun completed his BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2005 at the Islamic University of Technology (IUT), Bangladesh. After graduating as an engineer, Dr Mamun enrolled in the field of education to understand the science and pedagogy of teaching-learning. In this endeavour, Dr Mamun completed his post graduate diploma in technical education in 2006 and then joined the IUT faculty. Since then he has been enjoying and experiencing the life of an academic teacher and researcher in several educational institutes in Bangladesh and Australia. 

Understanding the science of teaching and learning in the virtual environment has been his particular focus in recent times. In this capacity, he is developing and delivering online learning modules to contribute to students’ independent learning. 

Dr Mamun completed his PhD at The University of Queensland, Australia. He also taught science subjects in the UQ foundation Year, IES College, Brisbane during his PhD study. Dr Mamun likes reading, travelling and fishing in his leisure time.
