About Victor

Over the last 20 years, I have worked at the country's top three ITPs in a number of roles, including teaching, programme management, academic development and course/curriculum development roles. I also have overseas experience as a lecturer in chemistry.

My particular focus as an e-learning designer is on assisting teaching staff to enhance their teaching practices and their students' learning through thoughtful use of technology.
