Regardless of the course, school, Faculty, our University, I create a learning environment that shatters siloed approaches to knowledge.

 

I strive to inspire students to acknowledge that we can longer afford to think in silos, and that the collective will achieve better results than the individual.

 

This is the first step in a long journey to allows us to ask, and answer, more complex questions in a very sophisticated fashion.

 

Nevertheless, it is granted that one cannot contribute to an interdisciplinary team if one does not have a disciplinary expertise.

 

So, it all begins with learning of a discipline well, but recognising the importance of related disciplines.

 

In this context, the professionals, researchers, and students, that share a classroom with me, do not need to set aside the cumulative knowledge from all the previous years of education and practice.

 

What is needed is a mindset open to work at intersection of the fields that are driving progress in the techno-social context of our era.
