Growth and improvement

'This is an active process for the expansion and growth of my vision, thinking and reflection, which leads me to realise what is my weakness and strong points in teaching. I will keep improving.'

Reflecting on learning

'This made me reflect deeper in effective learning… I will continue on forming my own teaching philosophy focusing on education and I am sure the recognition of FHEA will help me open a new world where I can learn more from excellent educators from all over the world and give my students excellent learning experience..'
