“Bringing out the child in you”

Hui Ting’s teaching philosophy is to empower students through rekindling their own abilities to question, seek answers and understanding even when challenged, and reason with their own minds. She believes these abilities are intrinsic to every student as when they were a child, they were self-directed and active learners, problem solvers and generators, and they learnt rapidly and readily.

She currently teaches:

  • PR1111 Pharmaceutical Biochemistry
  • PR3116 Concepts in Pharmacokinetics and Biopharmaceutics
  • PR3144 Principles of Research Methods
  • PR4207 Applied Pharmacokinetics and Toxicokinetics

In class, she is a proponent of active and collaborative learning. Outside class, she is actively engaged in the mentoring of student co-curricular activities which she believes provide students with a holistic university education and experience.
