My Profile


Im Reena from Mauritius and I am very happy to be part of wikieducator. Despite the daily hectic schedule at work, studies and home (I'm also the mother of a son of five years old who is very demanding!), I love to learn new skills.

Professional Background

I am an Instructional Designer at theCentre for Professional Development and Lifelong Learningat the University of Mauritiussince the last nine years. These years have been very enriching in terms of experience, learning new knowledge and skills, meeting and working with different people and developing and enhancing basic interpersonal skills at the work place.



  • I have been mainly involved in the pedagogical design and development of print-based distance education (DE) manuals.
  • Since I joined the University of Mauritius, the training obtained has been directed towards the same orientation, that is, instructional design and pedagogy for printed DE materials.
  • Oversee the design and implementation of DE materials according to the schedules and standards established by the University, 
  • Coordinate off-campus programmes, involved in the instructional editing/review of manuals and they oversee other related administrative duties.
  • Edit DE materials,
  • Carry out research in the field of teaching/learning and distance education.

My Interests


I love teaching and that is why I also tutor (not lecture!) at least one part-time course on Communication Skills module per year at the University of Mauritius.


I love reading novels, watching all types of movies, playing badmington and going to the gym and without forgetting to mention that I love and enjoy eating, gardening and flowers!!!

And like almost all Mauritians, I simply love going to the seaside!

My Wiki Projects

My optional community service (learning contract) project

100px-L4C-small.png  Agreement
By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
Brief description of project
Not yet decided; still many ideas popping up in my mind. But thinking about PBL or learning styles or it might even be something else.
Target date for completion
By the end of December 2010
