Teaching

I have a lot of teaching experience that I have acquired as a secondary school teacher of Mathematics in Spain (September 1990 - July 2003) and at De Montfort University (August 2003 - present) lecturing different modules at undergraduate, postgraduate (MSc) and PhD levels (see list below). Previously, I worked as a temporary lecturer at the Department of Algebra, University of Granada, in Spain (January 1990-March 1990) teaching Calculus and Financial Mathematics to first year students of Management Studies.

In June 2005, I completed the HEA accredited programme for staff new to teaching in Higher Education which entitled me to registered practitioner status of the Higher Education Academy. Certificate presentation was on 28th September 2005 by the Director of Human Resources. I was glad to have Dr Jenny Carter as my mentor during my first 2 years at DMU. Currently, I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I was nominated by students for a Vice-Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award in 2009. The students think highly of me and my contribution to the student experience is valued as the following quotation testifies:

"He willingly devotes time to listen to any student and has helped me to achieve good mark. He is consistently excellent communicator, stimulating and informative..."
