My philosophy to teaching, learning and career is that success in today's world increasingly depends upon your openness, flexibility and agility in learning continuously. We learn from a range of sources including in the workplaces, from the media and our networks and not just from books and courses. So, I would like for my students to learn how to learn beyond the formal courses they are enrolled in or the assessments they need to do. Rather, they need to conduct lifelong learning and reflection on work, education and experiences to grow in their vocation. My role is to facilitate the development of this attitude and orientation of continuous learning in my students.
