Saw Hoon obtained her PhD from the University of Cambridge and is a plant molecular biologist by training, researching on rate limiting steps of the chlorophyll biosynthetic pathway and on flower pigmentation in orchids. As beautiful as orchids are, she finds the scholarship of teaching and learning even more captivating.
She is a teaching specialist in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the School of Biomedical Sciences at The University of Melbourne.
Through the years, Saw Hoon has witnessed the progression of learning styles and is excited to delve into what drives students to learn and apply this knowledge. Along with specialist knowledge, she strives to prepare students for life after University by building the necessary skillset that allows students to face and conquer their challenges in the classroom - and beyond. Saw Hoon is also very interested in identifying and capitalising on teacher personality traits working on the best approach for quality teaching from the eyes of the learner. She strives to introduce a wide range of teaching strategies and cooperative learning approaches to lead to enhanced student outcomes.
