About Me

I am a Lecturer in the School of Management at the University of South Australia. Originally part of the teaching staff in the Bachelor of Business (Administrative Management), I now teach courses in the Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Management (Logistics and Supply Chain Management), and Master of Management (Strategic Procurement) programs.

My passion in teaching is to give students a practical experience which allows them the opportunity to put into practice the theory that they learn throughout their studies. Experiential courses, Industry Project 1 and Business Decision Making Simulation, give students this opportunity in either a real workplace or a simulated organisational environment.

Recently I have completed a MOOC on designing online activites run by Professor Gilly Salmon from Swinburne University (Carpe Diem) and am currently engaged in the ocTEL MOOC to improve my integration of Technology Enhanced Learning into my courses.
