Teaching

A positive learning environment is essential. I believe, respect to students, accountability of all evaluations and transparency are three key principles in teaching. Then privacy is crucial in building trust. I highly value active learning and encourage interaction by integrating contemporary topics and research findings.

At TED University I guided over 900 students across 9 courses. In anonymous course evaluation surveys, my average rating stands at 4.63 out of 5.00. Notably, in MEI505, the score was 4.89 out of 5.00, evaluated by professional educators, some of whom possess over 30 years of teaching experience. Overall, my aspiration is to contribute to human development through my research, scholarship, and teaching. I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to contribute to the academic and professional growth of students and inspire a new generation of leaders.

I have been working at TED University in Ankara, Turkey, in 2017. I initially worked as an adjunct Instructor and then as a Lecturer. I delivered Social Media Marketing (BA465), Brand Management (BA464), and New Product Development (BA462), for the first time at TED University – established in 2012. Due to the request of the Dean of the Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, I developed the course, Digital Marketing for Education Institutions (MEI505), and delivered to a class of professional educators in the Management in Educational Institutions Master of Arts program. Other courses I delivered includes the compulsory courses Production and Operations Management (BA305), Research Methods (BA401, ECON401, PSIR401) and Principles of Marketing (BA301). In addition to these courses, I supervised 15 graduation projects in Business Administration (BA402) and 1 in Economics (ECON402).
