Principle Lecturer, Marketing
NTU is a great place to teach, and the learning experience here just gets better and better. It’s very student-centred, and the students are involved in all the University’s academic decisions.
Ever since I can remember, teaching was my dream. It’s the only job where you get a reward as soon as you deliver your work; where you can see for yourself the happiness, passion and curiosity you’re inspiring in other people. Teaching is learning, and it’s that constant cycle of knowledge that keeps me in love with the job.
I remember being really inspired by one of my old high school teachers. You could see his passion when he was teaching, and it really affected me. I think that’s what makes a truly inspirational teacher: someone who believes in what they’re doing, and who feels great about how they’re doing it.
Students are moved by that passion and that joy. An inspirational teacher is someone who never stops learning about their subject, or the different ways of teaching and explaining it. That’s why I was so proud to receive the Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Award in 2020, and the Outstanding NTSU Teaching Award in 2019: it was an amazing feeling to know that my students had nominated me for both awards, and that I’d inspired them!
NTU is a great place to teach, and the learning experience here just gets better and better. It’s very student-centred, and the students are involved in all the University’s academic decisions. Personalisation is a really big thing; the University understands and celebrates the differences between the backgrounds and ambitions of our students, and how they like to learn. It means everyone has the chance to achieve their goals.
This is the university of opportunities, and I expect all my students to make the most of them. It’s a golden time in your life; a time when you can really build a lasting future. So engage with what’s on offer and develop your skills — you’ll learn how to learn here, and graduate with all the confidence and independence you could possibly need.
