Prior to joining CSU School of Accounting and Finance, Ana taught law at the University of Western Sydney and the University of Wollongong. Her teaching experience includes tutoring and mentoring indigenous students and students with special disabilities studying law. She has professional experience in the practice of criminal and business law. Her working history includes positions as an adult educator, legal officer to a federal parliamentarian, legal researcher, and public prosecutor. Ana was admitted as a lawyer of the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2008. Ana is currently undertaking her PhD at the University of Canberra.
Ana's teaching philosophy is based on supporting the self-directed learning of her students. Her teaching is inspired by Constructivist theory which is premised on the belief that learners ought to construct their own meaning and interpretation. She is a reflective teacher who has developed strategies for evaluating the impact of her teaching in student learning. Ana has used her knowledge of this field to design an innovative approach to teaching business students, consisting of context (reaffirming the value of legal content for future professional practices), non-traditional (reflective, dynamic, and uses of CSU technology that are not completely modular), to appeal to different types of learners and their particular motivations and learning styles.
