Overview

I am a passionate educator who actively contributes to CBL facilitation, lecturing, anatomy and physiology practical sessions. I support learner centered educational philosophies which allow me to positively influence students with their work and workloads. I continue to make a difference in how students learn by amalgamating basic and clinical science concepts and adding current research in the mix. I like delivering lectures and finding innovate ways to improve in-class pedagogy. My other interests are development of innovative curricula.

I have since July 2019:

  • developed two full innovative curriculum research projects. UQHREC has granted approval to commence for both projects
  • initiated and established research partnerships with UQ colleagues, PCHMEU and QUT
  • submitted external funding application
  • presented my works in two annual national conferences (2019, 2020) of prestigious organisations
  • submitted two manuscripts for publication (awaiting outcome)
  • partnered with my colleagues and significantly contributed to two student staff partnership projects
  • accepted invitation and critiqued & reviewed research submissions made to AMEE and ANZAHPE
  • reviewed external and internal (FoM, Clinical Practice Handbook) publications and made significant contributions to online resource development (TopHat)

In July 2020, my SSP project submmision, which is on enhancing learning of the nervous system module by evaluation CBL cases and lecture schedule, was approved by UQ SSP program and this project has received an internal grant of AUS$3000. Also, I am delighted to be selected to participate in the HEA@UQ program in the Senior Fellow category.

I enjoy many facets of my academic and professional roles that have defined me as a CBL tutor, course & module coordinator, lecturer, evolving researcher, team leader and member. I am humbled by student feedback which has furthered my passion to positively impact academic and prosocial behaviours in coming generations of healthcare professionals.
