I am co-teaching a Research Proposal and Development module at a Masters programme. In this module we introduce students to the research field, exposing them to various intricacies of a research programme. It is an intense module as it involves a lot of practical exercises that the students have to do in class and out of class as formative assessment in developing their research skills and proposal development.
In 2015 I taught Assessment in Education, a module at an Honours level. This module introduces students to different forms, practices and issues regarding assessment in education broadly, but also forces students to be reflective on their own experiences as teachers and assessors.
I am teaching and coordinating modules in the Education Studies Discipline. I co-teach in a 4th year Sociology of Education module (Education Studies 410) and I also coordinate and teach a 4th year module (Education Studies 420), on human rights, teacher professionalism and sexuality education.
The teaching of the modules entails designing lecture notes, lecturing, marking of various forms of assessment tasks, e.g. assignments and/or tests etc. In addition, coordination of the modules has proved to be a demanding task since it involves huge sizes of groups, ranging from over 900 to 1200 students and therefore requires precision and excellent coordination skills. Coordination also involves designing course materials for students, designing assessment tasks, setting exams, monitoring the performance of colleagues (staff teaching in the module), marking and finalising marks.
I supervise postgraduate students at Honours, Masters and PhD levels.
