My Teaching

My teaching interests combine the areas of brand management, digital marketing, marketing communication and promotion, and research methodology. Central to my teaching philosophy is that teaching and learning activities are interactive and practical relevant in which students are the central focus. Learning experience is socially co-created. Students and I work together as a community of learners with shared responsibility to co-create and complete the learning experiences necessary to achieve the desired outcomes of the course. Integrating theory and practice enables students to become more engaged in the learning process if they can see the relevance of their studies to professional, disciplinary, and personal contexts.
