Teaching Overview


  • I have taught at UOW since 2006 across seven chemistry subjects in all formats (lectures, tutes, workshops and lab classes) and ranging from large 1st yr service subjects (CHEM103 Introductory Chemistry for Engineers) to specialized classes of advanced 4th year Medicinal Chemistry students. I design and plan learning, assessment and tutorial activities in all areas of chemistry and in both traditional and online formats. I have previously led both 2nd and 3rd yr Organic Chemistry (CHEM212 & CHEM321) teaching teams as the coordinator for several years. From 2015 onwards, I took on the course director role and implemented the highly successful Bachelor of Pre-Medicine, Science and Health, including developing a specialist cross-University subject, MEDI128, involving mixed team teaching across chemistry, physics and medical ethics.
