n the last three years, I have held numerous workshops and lectures covering recent academic insights and research/statistical methods (e.g. quantitative statistics, research design and social network analysis).
I have been actively involved with academic as well as administrative work throughout my entire university career. In particular, during my graduate training, I have been fortunate enough to serve as a teaching assistant, seminar leader, supervisor and personal tutor for various research projects in the field of Social Cognition and Organisational Psychology. In addition, I have advised students on appropriate research topics, edited and evaluated their work and supervised final projects (BSc/MSc Dissertations).
Through my various teaching activities, during my graduate career, I have developed confidence and a strong interest in teaching. My objective is to inspire my students to develop their own learning interests and critical thinking. Teaching a wide range of courses has made me aware of the needs and interests of a diverse audience. Therefore, I aim to teach in a way always considering the interconnection between the student’s personal background, culture, and learning abilities, the relevant subject matter, and present-day debates on social and psychological issues. I try to choose content and activities that are both significant and challenging, encouraging students to think “beyond” their comfort zone and feel actively engaged in their own learning process. Similarly, I aim to design discussions and activities in a way that aims to stimulate students to make connections between the topic at hand and other disciplines.
