My teaching philosophy is encapsulated in the three words: Engagement, Accessibility, and Innovation. For students to learn, they first must feel a strong connection to the subject.

I used my CURI teaching framework to promote students’ CURIosity in learning science: (i) infuse Challenging and Interesting tasks in teaching; and ii) illustrate the Relevance and Usefulness of concepts in students’ lives.

It became natural that studio is treated as a research laboratory, introducing students the multitude of methods of designing, in order to ensure that their knowledge and design methodology coincide with the worldwide trends.
Learning is a primordial gesture, and as teachers we bear the responsibility of instilling passion and nurturing the curiosity of students.

In healthcare practice like pharmacy, I believe that successful education nurtures individuals who commit to life-long learning, person-centred care, and demonstrate competence, resilience, ethics, good leadership and teamwork. These attributes develop beyond graduation with parallel development in professional identity and expertise. Therefore, a successful learning journey leads students to pursue a fruitful career and achieve beyond …school.

With a supportive learning environment at the Teaching Pharmacy, students are encouraged to gain hands-on experience in pharmacy practice in parallel to the development of professional skills and greater ownership of their learning. (A photo taken at the Teaching Pharmacy)
