I am the Courses Director for the School of Agricultural and Wine Sciences.
We offer 20 courses at undergraduate and Post Graduate levels, by internal and distance education mode of studies, to domestic and international students.
My role is to monitor and maintain quality in all courses, and intrinsically in the various subjects we offer. This is achieved using a range of strategies. Some are generic to Charles Sturt University, some are specific to the industries that we work with.
I no longer teach as my role is mostly administrative. My teaching interests however still remain in viticulture, horticulture and agriculture, mostly with a focus on the role of plants in food production.
