Heather Vail

Tutor

Faculty of Business, Design and Service Industries

I teach computing and IT courses at Toi Ohomai and I also work on cross-curriculum initiatives to facilitate learning for students, including staff workshops, teaching guides and class sessions. 

I completed my master’s in Education with a focus on global studies at the University of Waikato and have been working actively on education research. In 2018, I worked with globally-situated educators in Kobe, Japan and explored Western pedagogy with Chinese educators in 2019. My research goal is to help redefine the global outreach of tertiary education based upon diverse and inclusive learning structures online.

In my free time, I like to pursue my other passions of photography, mountain biking and writing flash fiction.
