Teaching Statement

My Philosophy of teaching is anchored on one of the objective which is underpinned by the UPSA learning policy, viz: encourage students to develop their skills up to the demanding standard of the contemporary economic world. This objective can be achieved through series of activities including written assignment, online discussion groups, face to face teaching, and the completion of formative and summative assessment. The University recognises digital technologies as a delivery channel to the teaching and learning of courses. On that score, facebook, emails, and audio conferencing will be used.
