Teaching overview

Christopher runs tutorials for undergraduate and postgraduate medical and allied health courses. His positive contributions to students' educational experience has been recognised through the UWA Student Guild Students' Choice Awards. He has also been nominated for the University's Awards for Teaching Excellence and Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.

His teaching philosophy is based on a practical problem solving approach. People don't retain much from listening and memorising information from a specific disicpline. That is not how people learn. Instead, Christopher introduces new concepts by first quizzing students on knowledge or ideas that they are already familiar with. He then visually illustrates the links between the new concepts and prior knowledge. Next, he presents several clinical scenarios to the students, where they have to utilise their newly acquired concepts to solve the problems. Through this process, students figure out why the new concepts are important, otherwise, people tends to forget things that are not important or relevant to them. After that, repeat and practice, applying the new concepts or skills onto other problems.

But don't just believe everything you hear, Christopher encourages creative ideas and the practice of critical appraisal. He encourage students to test their hypothesis and figure out why it may or may not work. After all, this is what science is all about.
