Approach to teaching

My teaching approach combines theory and real-life application, seeking to heighten the learning experience for my students with practical relevance. I believe in teaching students on academic topics and frameworks while engaging them in practical activities that closely resemble real-life situations. By including case studies and use cases in my classes, I drive the use of  theoretical frameworks within concrete circumstances, aiding the development of innate skills. My approach aims to drive the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills, providing students with the necessary theoretical tools to succeed in their chosen areas of study while entrenching the usability of such tools and models for future application. As a lecturer with industry experience and a background in navigating educational and career transitions, my commitment extends beyond simply teaching. I strive to cultivate both the self-assurance and expertise required for success outside the confines of the classroom, while instilling the academic knowledge needed  to intellectually thrive.
