Personal profile


Driven and innovative, experienced Course Director with skills in Lecturing, Curriculum Mapping, and Organisational Development. 

Teaching Philosophy

The foundation of my teaching philosophy is based on the understanding of constructive alignment of curriculum, learning activities such as Problem-Based Learning and Team-Based Learning, evidence-based teaching material, interaction design and delivery methods. I try and maintain a fine balance between subject-centred, learner-centred and problem-centred curriculum design.“Global learning requires the integration of multiple, and often diverse and conflicting, perspectives, across both macro and micro contexts” (Kahn and Agnew, 2017). Thus, my teaching philosophy centres around the fact that “difference is as much a primary component as is similarity” when it comes to teaching within a Higher Education setting.
