Developing people

My educational perspective is learner-centered, rather than teacher-centered. Some time is devoted to lectures, more time is utilised to engage students in dialogues, reflective activities, and experiential learning. In this section you can read more about my 20+ years of educational experience in academic institutionas and private organisations, with learners of all ages and nationalities, across hierarhical positions.
