Teaching

My objective as a teacher is to develop students as independent learners by motivating them to develop their own learning interests and critical thinking. As an experienced academic, I know the importance of ethnic & cultural diversity, learning abilities, and collaborative learning in the student learning journey and try to make my course content interactive and inclusive for the diverse range of students at both UG and PG levels. I make the content and activities challenging for students that stimulate them to think outside the box and better engage with their own learning process.

I use gamification, simulation, case studies and group discussions that encourage students to develop their critical thinking and make connections between the academic and practical world alongside improving their communication and transcultural skills.

I am the module leader for BEMM784, Operations Management
