Lecturer in Health and Social Wellbeing
Nadine’s approach to teaching is student-centred, reflective and grounded in critical theory. For the past decade she has taught in law, gender studies, sociology and, most recently, criminology. Prior to this she worked in the community sector as a lawyer and advocate.
Nadine is a committed Buddhist practitioner and is currently completing teacher training in the Insight meditation tradition. As such, she has a particular interest in Buddhist sociology/a sociology of Buddhism and the ways these two paradigms can enliven each another.
In the classroom, Nadine focuses on the insights and wisdom of her students and honours alternative forms of academic knowledge through the use of bodily, intuitive and relational teaching methods.
