Teaching Interests

I have taught courses, executive seminars, and executive training programs on organisational behaviour, leadership, innovation, organizational change, creativity, employability, design thinking, self-making, career management, and business skills for the last 15 years. I have had experience of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, designing courses in virtual learning environments and supervising postgraduate dissertations. I have received McGill University Ph.D. Program Teaching Excellence Award.

I have a passion to transform management education through innovative pedagogies. I strive to cultivate an interactive environment in which students can express themselves freely, build on their strengths, and develop creative thinking skills for the 21st century. My instructional design is grounded in four anchors: Continuous learning, creative thinking, collective visioning, and collaborative working.

Currently, I have been working on developing new models of management education and leadership development: (1) Positive Management Education, (2) Management Learning at the Speed of Life and (3) Developing Creative Competences for Leaders based on Arts-Based Metaphors: Theatre, Jazz, Poetry, and Orchestra.

Since 2011, I have been designing and offering a series of professional development workshops for post-graduate students on Sunday mornings every month at London Centre for Social Studies (30-40 participants in each workshop). These workshops focus on post-graduate skills including teaching, academic writing, publishing, navigating the academic job market, and designing academic careers.

I am passionate about doodling and diary keeping and incorporate these into my teaching. I have recently written and designed a visual toolkit for young people aimed at developing their self-reflection, creativity, and employability skills ("Self-Making Studio: An Inspirational Doodle Kit for Self-Discovery and Employability").
