"For me SMU-X is about learning innovation. I am looking at how we can experiment with innovative ideas to enhance student learning experience.
As a University we need to constantly push the boundaries in order to evolve new ideas and SMU-X courses gives an opportunity for faculty, students and industry partners to achieve this. At the same time the SMU-X course I am teaching (Intelligent Accounting Function) excites me because the topics of the course are new and still emerging and there is no readily available packaged content. By designing new content, I get the chance to help the wider professional and academic community."
