Profile

Dr Nicholas Tse is a Scholarly Teaching Fellow, responsible for teaching efforts at the School of Engineering (SoE) at Macquarie University. He is also the SPINE units coordinator at SoE, responsible for a range of transferable skill development units within the undergraduate program. Prior to this appointment, Nicholas was a postdoc at the School, researching on nanoparticulate platinum-based bimetallic hydrogen catalyst. During 2009-2013, he completed he PhD in Chemistry at the University of Melbourne in conjunction with CSIRO Materials science and Engineering, Clayton, Australia. His research expertise was on High-throughput materials discovery of Inorganic nanomaterials: nano- and meso- structured silicates for medical imaging applications.

Dr Nicholas Tse is a passionate educator with a focus in scaffolded curriculum design. Many of his teaching approaches has been integrated into the undergraduate engineering program at SoE and has a focus on developing student employability skills. His current research focuses on employability development and transformative skill development within undergraduate studies. He was on the organising committee for educational conferences such as AAEE2017 and have been the author in over 20 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers.

 

Teaching

  • ENGG100: Introduction to Engineering (Undergrad.)

  • MECH205: Introduction to Engineering Materials (Undergrad.)

  

Teaching philosophy

My teaching philosophy endorses iterative active learning cycles would develop true empowered in the learner. Which would be evident when the learner applies the learned knowledge and demonstrates competencies in psychomotor skills. By applying a scaffolded teaching approach across a curriculum, I try to rely on a constructivist teaching style. Students will be able to see the values of education in the practical sense through employability and true empowerment.
