Õpetamisfilosoofia :

Õpetamisel olen lähtunud Plutarchose mõttest:

Kõikides õppeainetes olen õpetamisel kasutanud nn kombineeritud õppe (blended learning) meetodit, kus auditoorne töö on toetatud veebipõhise õppetegevusega Moodle e-õppe keskkonnas.

ÕPPETEGEVUSE ARUANNE 01.09.2010- 28.08.2015
Nendel aastatel olen õpetanud bakalaureuseõppes õppeaineid: TMT0050 Töökeskkond ja ergonoomika, RAR0160 Riski-ja ohutusõpetus, RAR2110 Riski-ja ohutusõpetus, RAR 2300 Riski-ja ohutusõpetus, RAR3460 Riski-ja ohutusõpetus, NTS0070 Riski-ja ohutusõpetus.
Magistriõppes olen õpetanud õppeaineid: TMT1220 Sotsiaalkeskkonna riskid (inglise keeles), TMT1240 Sotsiaalkeskkonna riskid.

Õpetamisfilosoofia:
Õpetamisel olen tuginenud konstruktivistlikule õpiteooriale, mis praktilises õppetegevuses on sisaldanud ka biheivioristliku ja kognitivistliku õpiteooria elemente.
Kõikides õppeainetes olen õpetamisel kasutanud nn kombineeritud õppe (blended learning) meetodit, kus auditoorne töö on toetatud veebipõhise õppetegevusega Moodle e-õppe keskkonnas.

Uute õppematerjalide koostamine:
Pidevalt olen uuendanud õppematerjale ja õppekursusi Moodle e-õppe keskkonnas. Olen regulaarselt osalenud selleteemalistel konverentsidel ja koolitustel.

Nendel aastatel olen osalenud uute ainekavade koostamisel ECTS-i järgi.

Neil aastatel olen olnud rahvusvahelise programmkomitee liige IADIS (International Association of Development of the Informatiion Society) konverentsidel IADIS: ICT, Society and Human Beings ning osalenud neil konverentsidel Saksamaal, Itaalias, Hispaanias ja Portugalis.
