Teaching and Supervision

Teaching Statement

My teaching philosophy is to provide informative and enthusiastic lectures in a supportive and friendly learning atmosphere. I always try to awake the curious mind through an enjoyable discussion at the end of each lecture. I also gain great satisfaction and enjoyment from my role as a teacher to see students grow in confidence in their ability to tackle problems, determine answers and in confidence to put forward alternative ideas. I have continuously improved research-led teaching, appropriate usage of real-life applications, approachability and professionalism in teaching style. I performed excellently in the last semester, during the unique and unprecedented period of the COVID-19 lockdown, which highlights not only my flexibility and resilience, but ability to adapt in challenging circumstances. I was also able to modify assessments that fits the University compliance requirements.

For adult learners, I am applying four principles of andragogy as proposed by Malcolm Knowles (2015). Since some of my students are adults’ learners and they can be better engaged in a problem-centered context with real-world relevance, so I am adding context to my given exercises to increase their engagement and ease of learning. I also recognised that not all students prefer self-directed learning, and that current learning approaches suggest that incorporating debates and critical questioning, coupled with visual media help improve overall comprehension. Considering this, I plan my lessons to help cater to varying learning tendencies. I start my lectures with a discussion of newspaper article or YouTube clip about commercial/residential property market trends and/or home affordability/rental reports etc.
