Sagini Keengwe research on educational best practices garners academic attention
Sagini Keengwe, associate professor in the College of Education & Human Development at the at the University of North Dakota, was recently notified that the Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index has listed two of his latest books, Research Perspectives and Best Practices in Educational Technology Integration and Virtual Mentoring for Teachers: Online Professional Development Practices.
The Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index, a resource used by academic professionals and other researchers, indexes select book titles in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities.
“It’s the most comprehensive index of its kind,” said Keengwe. “It allows users to search seamlessly across books, journals and conference proceedings to find the information that is most relevant to their work. It also increases the visibility of a researcher’s published work.”
Keengwe was also recently recognized at the 2014 Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference in Jacksonville, Florida. His co-authored paper, “Using Technology Pedagogical Content Knowledge Development to Enhance Learning Outcomes” won one of the five TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) SIG Paper Awards for 2014.
Keengwe’s teaching and writing focuses primarily on instructional technology integration and student-centered approaches in teacher education. He has co-authored 65 journal articles and edited 10 scholarly textbooks with a focus on instructional technologies both in K-12 and in higher education.
Keengwe is set to publish two more book titles this summer, Models for Improving and Optimizing Online and Blended Learning in Higher Education and Advancing Higher Education with Mobile Learning Technologies: Cases, Trends, and Inquiry-Based Methods.
