  • Research Interests

    While attending University is more than just the obtaining of a degree, it is the students' academic endeavours that will determine the outcomes of their future career. These endeavours rely on, and deserve, the highest quality teaching that we can possibly provide.

    In order to provide this high quality teaching, it is essential that staff and students communicate and understand their expectations of each other, particularly in regards to assessments, as it is the assessments that provide the tangible measurement of a students success in their chosen field of study.

    My research interest centres around understanding students' perceptions of the courses that I teach into, with the aim of improving the learning and teaching outcomes of those courses.
