Overview

My aim as an academic is to create an exciting and interactive experiential learning environment for students. I want students to question what they know and to engage their full senses in discovering what they don’t know. In creating this environment I seek to apply innovative ways of delivering education and assessment. My broader vision is to apply this teaching and learning philosophy to the ways in which business environments manage their human resource. Organisational learning is a foundation for creativity and innovation in the workplace. Hence my vision is to inspire students, and the organizations in which they work, to examine different models of human interaction in the workplace. My particular vision is for more peer coaching and mentoring in the Australian work environment as I see this as a fundamental transformation for organisational learning and transfer of training.
