Teaching interests

My teaching interests centre mainly on health promotion, health education, health policy, primary health care and public health. In addition, another main teaching interest lies with the theory and practice of research and research methodology - especially as teaching and learning related to research supervision. I'm also interested in academic process related to assignment, thesis and publication development.
