Swati Suryakant Jhaveri

Fellow

I aspire to achieve the following in my approach to teaching:

  • Encourage student participation and engagement in all areas of the course's programme of study. This includes encouraging active participation in all classes, including tutorials and lectures.
  • Encourage a practical application and understanding of academic subjects.
  • Encourage a multi-layered understanding of law through a wider consideration of, for example, policy arguments, theories and underlying concepts.
  • Encourage independent thought and a genuine interest in the subject to facilitate a love for life-long learning beyond University.
