Hi and welcome to KAJI.my!
I am currently a teaching staff at Universiti Utara Malaysia since 2004. Courses I have taught are mostly related to educational technology. I have a Masters degree in Education from University of Tasmania (UTas) and a Bachelors degree in Information Technology from University of Technology PETRONAS (UTP).
I would like to apply what I have learnt from my profession, my academic background, my interests and other life experience to good use so that I can contribute to the society. I hope I could instill these values to my students as well. I do not want my students to become excellent in academics but poor in ethical values. I wish to teach people to become human, not monsters.
People are individually different, so as an educator it is important to quickly understand each person’s strengths and weaknesses. This is important so that we can adapt our teaching methods to fit most students if not all.
I like to treat my students as friends while practicing professional values at the same time. In this way, I could know my students better especially in terms of their current unseen problems which can affect their learning performance. Knowing their current state, we can advise and act accordingly to keep their motivation to learn as high as possible.
You will know when you have done an excellent job when your students are happy with you while able to complete all their tasks up to the required standards. I always hope that my students will become better educators and human beings than I am.
From my personal experience, if you want to learn something new, asking these questions will help a lot.
- What is it?
- What does it do?
- What does it have?
- How can we use it ethically?
