Teaching

I have experience as a tutor assisting undergraduate students in developing research and evaluation competencies relevant to careers in medicine, allied health professional practice, and health science research.  Topics I have taught include:

  • introductory statistics for medicine
  • designing a research question
  • different study types
  • experimental vs observational research
  • hypothesis testing
  • confounding and bias
  • logistic regression
  • introduction to qualitative research
  • critical appraisal


I have additionally been a facilitator of small group learning at regular workshops run for staff, students and researchers covering a variety of topics related to Evidence-Based Practice and Systematic Reviews.
Training Courses Attended:

  • Practical Foundations at Bond (Bond University, May 2016): one-day workshop of practical teaching and learning basics including classroom 101, planning and delivering assessment, student feedback, teaching challenges, creating teaching portfolios and teaching philosophy
  • Training the next generation of ‘Evidence Creators’ and ‘Evidence Consumers’ (Evidence Live Conference, Oxford, June 2016): Tips and tricks for curriculum development and teaching practice in Evidence-Based Medicine
