I seek to develop graduates who will make a significant, positive impact on New Zealand’s managerial, economic, and social performance.
My role is to [realise] the vision for [my courses] through practical, challenging, and exciting [learning processes] that also meet the requirements of the … [university’s] enterprise development programme.
Once the course begins, my role [is] to work with course participants to help them realise their personal objectives… This includes helping [them establish contact] with people and other resources to help you on your learning adventure.
My philosophy of teaching is to provide encouragement and inspiration so you are motivated to establish a foundation of knowledge for your future experience and learning.
I believe that you should be led to discover and evaluate the highest quality of knowledge that exists to date. In addition to helping you find knowledge that has immediate relevance, I also intend to sensitise you to knowledge that may have relevance to you within the next five to ten years of your professional life.
I value managerial competence combined with good judgement, sensitivity, and responsibility for environmental, social, and cultural issues.
