Teaching Interests

My teaching philosophy is ‘learning by doing and sharing the experience'. Through the prism of Kolb's (1984) experiential theory, I designed my teaching materials to include collaborative, simulated real-life assignments as I have found that they complement the diversity of learning styles and contextualise abstract accounting/financial theories and concepts.
