Ireni Farag

School of Counselling

Excellence in Teaching Award overall winner for 2021 was Ireni Farag for designing teaching underpinned by socio-cultural research and a desire to stimulate curiosity in students that encourages lifelong learning and enhances the student learning experience at Excelsia College.

Her application provided numerous examples of versatile teaching methods that enhanced students‘ learning experience at Excelsia College. Carefully designed, scaffolded assessments ensure students are introduced carefully to complex theories and models. Case studies that include Christian organisations display a level of design in which students gain intimate knowledge of potential organisations where they can work in the future. Adaption of a client-centred counselling approach to teaching is evidenced by enthusiastic and inspired student feedback.
