In 2009 I was appointed as an Associate Lecturer in Anatomy and Physiology in the then School of Life Sciences at QUT. Initially I had the pleasure of teaching and unit coordinating first year physical education; nutrition & dietetics; podiatry; exercise science and biomedical engineering students in LSB142 Anatomy and Physiology and LSB231 Physiology. In 2014 under the auspices of the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBMS) I took over teaching and unit coordination of LSB131 Anatomy with podiatry, exercise science and biomedical engineering students with the latter 2 cohorts progressing to my LSB231 Physiology unit. More recently, have taken up the unit coordination and teaching duties in HLH106 part of the SBMS Honours research student program. In my teaching I try to promote and foster student engagement through enthusiastic presentation of unit content in cohort specific contexts using real life examples of application of subject matter, its importance to society and the student’s field of study. This focusses the importance of our student’s career objectives in broader societal contexts.
