Teaching

Teaching is an art which can only be mastered by reflection of the past. I have many years of teaching experience, which is underpinned by the ethos of student engagement, and the delivery of innovative teaching to a high quality standard.
I have contributed to learning and teaching enhancement in the Management School across a range of areas, including, curriculum development, assessment and feedback. In order to facilitate effective student learning and enhance the student experience, I have devised module text books for the modules taught in the past and current.

In my teaching modules, I use interactive worked examples followed by further questions in the tutorials, During mid semester, I provide the students a test to ensure students remain focused and are engaged with the module. I am currently teaching:
