"The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book" ~ Author Unknown

Welcome to my online teaching portfolio...
I am a lecturer in the Department of Radiography in the Health Sciences Faculty at the Durban University of Technology. This e-portfolio is designed to present my teaching practice — it includes a statement of my teaching philosophy; teaching experience; teaching methods; teaching innovations; evaluations of my teaching performance by my students; my professional development which includes awards, research and testimonials from my peers; and finally the community of practice.
I have been teaching since 2001, and involved in all levels of undergraduate teaching. Recently, I have become involved in post graduate supervision. I believe that the best teachers are those who care the most about teaching but more importantly those who care the most about their students. I believe that caring in a classroom acknowledges the diversity of students in terms of educational experiences, cultural backgrounds, and learning styles. This means knowing who our students are…..
I received my Master of Technology: Radiography degree in 2007 from the DUT.
I am contemplating my PhD journey, leaning more towards my teaching practice. I have an interest in how students in the 21st century learn, in particular, in a South Africa context.
Although I do not hold a formal education qualification, I continuously strive to be updated and relevant in all my interactions. So while I may not “talk the academic talk”, I strive continuously to “walk the walk”.........
It is hoped that this e-portfolio bears testimony to what it means to be truly "technology enabled" and to be a "digital native".
