Teaching

Professor Kajewski holds an ethos of “student as client”, and that quality teaching and the facilitation of learning is paramount to success as a university and personal satisfaction as a member of the academic team. His primary aim in the pursuit of this philosophy is to provide students with an environment conducive to high quality learning, such that they maximise their capabilities for their chosen discipline as well as their societal role as members of a global community.

His teaching activities at QUT have spanned the spectrum of university teaching activities from involvement in all year levels of undergraduate programs, postgraduate coursework and research programs, higher-degree supervision and extensive involvement with corporate education both nationally and internationally.

Students have different needs and motivations, and their learning requirements and reasons for commencing or returning to university often demand alternative approaches. Professor Kajewski’s aim with postgraduate students is not solely to instil knowledge – rather, the aim is to stimulate critical thinking and analysis by introducing concepts, contemporary issues and contentious points of view that generate debate and discussion in the student cohort. Through a carefully controlled mix of lecture, case study analysis, critical debate, and discussion, he creates interactive environments in which as much teaching is done by the individual students as is by done himself.
