Re: Nisar Keshvani

Dear Sir or Madam:

It gives me great pleasure to provide a reference for Nisar Keshvani. He is a ‘Research and Capacity Building Award’ Scholar with the Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology from 2006 – 2010. Nisar’s relationship with QUT dates back to 1998 – where he came as an undergraduate student, and then pursued postgraduate study. He has worked with us as tutor, researcher, online journalism lecturer and then as a visiting lecturer.



I was introduced to Nisar as a promising PhD candidate and was impressed by his international and diverse work experience. He has an impressive track record for a young person.


I was introduced to Nisar as a promising PhD candidate and was impressed by his international and diverse work experience. His career began as a print journalist, before shifting to digital media – both to produce content and manage website development. He grasped important concepts quickly to have the credibility to lecture in the field. Nisar is widely published and has consulting experience in India, Pakistan, Central Asia and East Africa. He has an impressive track record for a young person.

Nisar’s PhD research project is on the use of information communication technology as an instructional interface to develop innovative and user friendly teaching and learning interactions. His research focuses particularly on developing country context where the infrastructure and availability of equipment is limited.

I am certain with guidance, he will develop the body of knowledge required to significantly contribute to the field. Nisar’s intended field study in the developing world is unique as not many candidates have the required self drive and intellectual acumen to think ‘’outside the box’’ to deal with unconventional challenges.

As his primary PhD supervisor, I am confident that Nisar will pursue his PhD research with the same enthusiasm and dedication as his previous assignments. On a personal note, I have found Nisar to be well mannered, determined and a innovative thinker. He adapts well to foreign environments, is culturally sensitive and works well with people from all backgrounds.

I wish him every success and have no reservations in supporting his application.

Yours sincerely

Hitendra Pillay
