Teaching

Andrea’s teaching philosophy is one that engages students and promotes their capabilities. Andrea engages students in learning experiences that empower them to take responsibility for their learning and promote leadership and independent thought. Students engage in case study analysis and real world simulations such as negotiations and case conferences to develop their theoretical understanding of property related concepts and their ability to apply these concepts in a way that improves their work readiness.

Andrea’s professional background is cross-disciplinary, in property practice and law, which informs her teaching practice. Andrea has experience in developing curriculum, coordinating and teaching in a number of core property areas such as residential, commercial and statutory valuation, property transactions and property law as it relates to property practice. Her cross disciplinary teaching activities include the development, coordination and teaching of cross-disciplinary, course wide units such as Stewardship of Land and Understanding the Built Environment.

Andrea is passionate about student learning and has published articles in international and national journals and been invited to present at international conferences in the area of teaching quality and practice. She has also been involved in a number of teaching and learning grants, such as:

QUT Teaching and Learning Grant, Creating new understanding through threshold concepts in Stewardship of Land (2012)

QUT Teaching and Learning Grant, Enhancing first year engagement and retention through game playing (2014)
