TEACHING INTERESTS

Teaching is about developing students and helping them to grow. In particular, I want to develop critical thinking. This growth is best achieved by inspiring the students to engage with the material and to exchange learning with each other: the best way to learn something is to teach Innovation and Leadership I led the redesign of the M.Mangt.Sc to the MSc Business Analytics, with new and revamped modules and a new ethos of engagement with industry sponsors: minor theses are on real-world problems, in partnership with industry sponsors. I use software in class to show algorithms in action: I share these approaches with colleagues. I developed a new module, MIS40750, "Producing the Dissertation", covering programming; planning and implementing an academically rigorous research project, and documenting the research as a minor thesis.
