Graduate Pathway InstructorRead teacher's story
With over 10 years of teaching experience, Professor Steven Harris-Scott continues to enjoy the diversity of his classroom. It excites him and his students when they teach him something new about their cultures and home countries.
"I try to make my classes fun and engaging, while also getting real work done. I like using many different styles with my students so they don’t get bored (and so I don’t get bored). I lecture, we discuss, they do group work, and they meet with me individually during class some while the rest of the students do a workshop. I also tend to dance from time to time, sing a lot, and play air guitar!"
Want to know his best advice he gives to students starting university study while studying English?
"Don't get frustrated! The Pathway year can be difficult, but it prepares the students so well for the rest of their time at the university if they take advantage of all the support they get with us. I've heard from several of my former students that their second and even third years at Mason were easier than their Pathway year, and that it really prepared them to succeed."
