I teach a human-centred approach to technology development, from core computer science competencies to leading edge digital health technology design and innovation methods.

My teaching is grounded in the fundamental didactic concepts of dialogue- and problem-based learning as well as learning-focused teaching. Embracing a learn-by-doing ethos, my students learn through group-based and community-centred project work elevating students' capacity and confidence to engage with, reflect upon and resolve complex, real-world problems of technology design. I see technology as deeply embedded in our daily lives, and in turn a human-centred computer science as an ethical imperative requiring a teaching practice which speaks to our most human values, embraces a resistance to technological solutionism, and strives to elevate our capacity to make a difference.
