Introduction — R Voice

Introduction

“Hello! My name is Oladele Campbell. 

I am a PhD student and a computer science lecturer.

I currently live in Zungeru. Nigeria.

My research area is computer science education. 

What I like best about my work is seeing novice computer science students develop interest, learn to gain, and apply computing knowledge and skills during class exercises, tests, exams, and real projects.

When I’m not working, I like to attend church activities, stay indoors with my family, listen to the news, etc.

It’s great to be here. And I look forward to getting to know each of you better 😊”

    Hi @Oladele Campbell - Welcome to R Voice. I loved the fact that you are involved in academia in both ways - both as a researcher/student and as someone who teaches and mentors. That has to be totally rewarding. I am sure a lot of what you experience while teaching and mentoring students may be applicable or useful to your research journey.

    But I am also curious - how are you able to juggle your own research and teaching. As a researcher you may have to, apart from research, write or attend classes yourself. And as a lecturer I am sure there's a lot of work aside from conducting lectures - preparing for them, tests, grading, giving time to students, etc. So how do you manage both roles?
