I am a Professional Teaching Fellow (PTF) in the Information Systems and Operations Management Department at The University of Auckland Business School (UABS). You can view my staff profile here. I have spent my entire career at the University of Auckland. I started as a Tutor in 2000, became a Senior Tutor in 2001 and was promoted to Professional Teaching Fellow in 2011.
As a PTF I am an academic with a primary focus on teaching and academic service. I currently teach INFOSYS110 Business Systems, which is a core stage 1 undergraduate paper with an enrolment of approximately 2200 students each year. I also teach a stage 3 course, INFOMGMT392 Data Visualisation.
I love information technology hence my involvement in an Information Systems department. My work on INFOSYS110 has necessitated extensive use of educational technology due to the huge numbers of students in my classes. I am an innovator and I love to share effective tools and ways of doing things.
I serve on the UABS Learning and Teaching Committee due to my expertise with learning technologies. I am the Deputy Chair of The University of Auckland IT Faculty Forum and the academic representative on The University of Auckland Continuous Improvement Program Steering Committee.
I am interested in achieving CMALT accreditation for a number of reasons:
Achieving CMALT accreditation will help my career by providing a formal recognition of my experience which should potentially open the door to some interesting opportunities.
