Teaching context and philosophy
My teaching philosophy really centers around individualization of my teaching strategies to suit individual students needs and available resources. I appreciate that my education practice should apply current pedagogic principles and must be fluid in response to feedback undergoing constant reflection for betterment of my approach to teaching.
The framework I use to apply this practice takes its foundation from the Scientia Education Experience. Specifically Inspired Learning for Inspired Teaching, encouraging Feedback and Dialogue and Being Digital. To successfully fulfill these domains, I utilize pedagogic principles I have learned through undertaking the Graduate Certificate of University Learning and Teaching and presently endeavouring to expand my pedagogic research to improve assessment practices in clinical teaching and assessment for Allied Health disciplines, specifically Exercise Physiology.
Moreover, as the Course Convenor of three core, clinical courses in the Exercise Physiology Program in the Faculty of Medicine, my teaching design and delivery is also aimed at aligning with Professional standards defined by Exercise Sport Science Australia (ESSA), the national accrediting body for Exercise Physiologists in Australia and the accrediting body of the Exercise Physiology Program at UNSW Sydney.
