I use a variety of teaching methods to cater the needs of students. I apply an online, hybrid/blended model, experiential learning, encourage group discussions, engage student-centered discussions, and cases analysis. I specifically focus on project-based, inquiry- based and problem-based learning. Besides, talk/discussion with industry specialists are also additions.

My teachings (undergraduate, graduate, executive) are research informed. I actively integrate research findings and update the teaching contents.

I also consult with a range of teaching resources mainly include the case studies, current researchers on the subject, cases and examples of digital innovation in industry  (e.g. innovative firms), recent developments in digital Innovation, and get hands on experience with problem-based learning (from Industry). 

In particular, I encourage my students to become active learners by working on their own start-ups or entrepreneurial projects.
