Pedagogical knowledge

University of the Sunshine Coast

Casual Academic / 2018 – Nov. 2022

I delivered lectures at the university’s ‘satellite’ campuses (Gympie and Caboolture) and conducted tutorials across all campuses for various courses (EDU413, EDU415 and EDU300). I developed educational materials collaborating with course coordinators to achieve ongoing refinement of grading tools and assessment design over successive iterations — continuously enhancing content offerings. I audited cross-institutional university courses and assessed the Graduate Teacher Professional Assessment (GTPA). I continue to mark assessments for USC, remotely.

English Teacher / 2001 – 2008

I taught across various institutions in Europe and Australia, including classes of 15 to 18 year-olds at Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School, a Torrens University initiative.
