It is my belief that teaching is more than imparting knowledge upon students. Teaching to me is to develop students’ ability to appreciate the intricacy of a subject and, even more important, is to develop students’ learning capability so they can learn on their own as knowledge changes at a rapid pace in today’s environment.
My areas of expertise are in management and use of information technologies, information systems development, data management and decision support. I am fascinated by what determines the success of the use of information technologies and why/how an organization adopts one technology rather than others.
